Drawing upon curriculum from Common Sense Media, students are guided in how to be positive digital citizens. “Digital media and technology is evolving at a rapid pace, bringing with it amazing opportunities as well as real risks for our children. On the positive side, young people are using the Internet and mobile technologies to create, connect, explore and learn in ways never before imagined. Challenges from harmful behaviors, cyberbullying to digital cheating, are surfacing in schools and in homes across the country. Young people face ethical challenges daily…” The seminar, led by a team of faculty and professional experts, proves an immersive experience in digital citizenship.
