Teach Digital Citizenship with Badging – Online

As students navigate their way through the digital world, it is our responsibility to provide them with the tools that will shape them into responsible digital citizens. Our roles as educators allow us the prime opportunity to help students learn and grow as they take advantage of the technology that is available to them.  This online workshop will teach key concepts surrounding the topic of digital citizenship and supply you with a variety of creative and fun ways to weave positive digital practices and lessons into your teaching. Each week, we will create a badge for that session’s specialized topic related to Digital Citizenship for participants to use with their students.  We will use elements of technology and social media throughout the workshop to integrate key digital citizenship concepts into students’ daily lives.
