Digital citizenship is for all ages.
The Internet and technology is not leaving us, on the contrary, it is expanding at lightening speed!
Parents, teachers, and students are always learning from each other different resources and information that is happening in cyberspace.
Education is knowledge that can empower you to be safer and kinder online.
Do you think schools should teach cyber-civics and social media etiquette?
The digital citizenship Twitter chat returns in 2014 every 2nd & 4th Wednesday of the month from 7-8 pm EST. Join the student-led conversation about this important issue!
Paige Woodward, a senior at Franklin Community High School, is on a mission to implement social media education in schools. She actually created a 10-week YouTube series, "The Top 10 Things Not to Do On Twitter" and her blog post Where are the Role Models, should be a must read for adults.
Here is an excerpt from the post:
"Now, if grown adults are bashing others and posting demeaning words about another due to their appearance, then we cannot blame the children for doing the same thing."
What is digital citizenship?
Join the first #digcit chat of 2014 on Wednesday, January 8th from 7:00- 8:00 pm EST as they discuss specifically:
1. Why should social media be allowed in schools?
2. How can we get teachers & administrators to believe in the benefits of social media?
3. How can students use social media to build his/her personal brand?
4. How can students use social media for self-directed learning & networking?
5. Is it necessary to have "personal" and "professional" social networking accounts?
6. What advice do you have for high school and college students who want to start using social media to build a personal learning network?
They look forward to hearing from you during the #digcit chat on January 8th!
