Event Description

CoSN and UNESCO, in partnership with HP, Participate, Partnership for 21st Century Learning, Global Education Conference, ISTE, and iEARN-USA will host the 2018 Global Symposium on Digital Citizenship bringing together thought leaders from across the world to explore the role of education in ensuring students are responsible digital citizens.

Internet safety has been a concern for policymakers and educators since the moment technology, particularly the Internet, was brought into the classroom.  Increasingly many school systems are evolving that focus from simply minimizing risk and blocking access, to more responsible use policies and strategies that empower the student as a digital citizen.  Digital citizenship initiatives also seek to prepare students to live in a world where online hate and radicalization are all too common.

Join us for a lively and engaging exploration of what are the essential digital citizenship skills that students need, including policies and practices in response to the following questions:

  • How should we access information effectively and form good judgments as to its accuracy?
  • How should we develop the skills to engage with others respectfully and in a sensitive and ethical manner?
  • How should we develop an appropriate balance between instruction and nurturing student behaviors that ensure ICT is used safely and responsibly?
