webeventlogoDate: September 17, 2013

Time: 8:00 – 9:00 pm EDT

Description: Being a connected learner is critical as a way for both educators and students to create authentic opportunities for collaboration and publication. However, do your students understand how to use technology in a safe and responsible way? Having a concrete digital citizenship plan is essential for all stakeholders (students, teachers, administrators and parents). This session will address a framework for teaching digital citizenship in your class/school. Examples of how your students can learn how to build their digital identities and learn how to harness the power of social media will be provided.
