Nurturing Creative and Responsible Digital Citizens
Join us for this lunch time discussion group

Schools have always been charged with the task of producing good citizens. But how has our definition of a "good citizen" changed over the ages?

In today's world of near-ubiquitous connectivity, in which ordinary people have almost instantaneous access to unlimited stores of information and the ability to interact with anyone, anywhere, anytime, what does it mean to be an effective citizen?

What skills and knowledge do our students need to participate fully in a world transformed by technology? What role should our schools play in developing effective digital citizens?

Lets discuss these question and more!  What is being done in our classrooms now to address the "Digital Citizen".  What should be done?
