Dealing with cyberbullying, privacy, safety, and other digital dilemmas is a real challenge for today’s schools. But technology also provides incredible opportunities for students to learn, connect, create, and collaborate in ways never before experienced. In Digital Citizenship, part of the Digital-Age Educator program, teachers will look at issues such as digital footprints, evaluating websites, teaching students to avoid copyright issues, the Open Ed movement, and automated personalization.
