Teaching Digital Citizenship – Shaping Responsible Members of a Digital World

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. We will use elements of technology and social media throughout the workshop to integrate key digital citizenship concepts into students’ daily lives.

Participants who apply for graduate credit will create an Interactive Digital Citizenship Portfolio (a Digital Passport, a Digital Notebook OR an interactive portfolio of their own design) to use with either students or colleagues.
