Get the Picture! Using Images for Digital Citizenship Conversations

October 5 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm


Are you and your students tired of those “canned” digital citizenship lessons that always seem to cover the same topics and elicit lackluster responses? Your digital citizenship lessons don’t have to be something you dread! In this webinar, you’ll learn new ways to put students in the center of the conversation while also expanding your notion of digital citizenship beyond internet safety and cyberbullying. You’ll walk away with lots of practical ideas to use in the classroom TOMORROW as well as a curated collection of more than 800 images.

Dr. Kristen Mattson is the author of “Digital Citizenship in Action” (2017) and “Ethics in a Digital World” (2021). She is an adjunct professor at the University of Illinois and a consultant working to make digital citizenship education more accessible to all.
