AA #3779: Digital Citizenship in Action
March 12 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm$125
In this course, leaders will learn about the history and current state of digital citizenship education. Leaders will then critically evaluate the explicit, implicit, and null curriculum around digital citizenship in their schools. Throughout the course, participants will dive deep into each of the six competencies of a digital citizen by growing in their own competency knowledge, examining resources to bring into their schools, and considering how each competency can be further supported. Leaders will finish the course by developing an action plan to improve digital citizenship education that addresses immediate, short-term, and long-term goals.
This course will take 6 hours to complete with a one hour break for lunch. Completion of this workshop will result in 1 AA credit or 6 PD Hours.
