Not Your Average Digital Citizen Workshop

Jenni Stadtmiller, HCESC | Jackie Heinzelmann, HCESC

THU, JAN 27 – 8:00 AM – 10:00 AM |Room: SOUTH 322 | Session Number: W71


If this year has taught us anything, it is that our students are capable and ready to engage in a digital world. It is more important than ever to do a self-check on how we are guiding our students as far as Digital Citizenship. But, how can we do this without adding “one more thing” to our overflowing plates? Join us for a collaborative workshop where you will experience truly embedding Digital Citizenship skills. This will go beyond teaching one more lesson on creating safe passwords, and show you how you can encourage your students to have a strong digital self, become a digital interactor, and ultimately evolve into a digital agent. All workshops are BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). Participants are responsible for bringing a wifi enabled device with all workshop software/apps downloaded before attending.
