Digital Ethics: Don’t teach STEM without it!

There is a current emphasis on STEM in K-12 education. Students are introduced to coding and exploring in Makerspaces, and they are challenged in computer science courses. If we look to Silicon Valley, though, we may notice something missing from our current curriculum – digital ethics. 

In this session, educators will learn their role in promoting social responsibility through digital ethics in our current tech users and future tech developers. Attendees will participate in several activities that can be brought back to classrooms. This session isn’t just for the STEM educators out there – our humanities teachers play an important role in this work, too!

Learning Objectives

By attending this session, attendees will be able to:

  1. Recognize the need for digital ethics conversations in the classroom.
  2. Find places in their curriculum to interject digital ethics.
  3. Experience activities in digital ethics from the perspective of a student.
