Strategies For Encouraging Ethical Digital Citizenship

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Today's youth - tomorrow's voters, workers, and leaders - have never known a world without consistent Internet access. The creators and creatives of today need the skills to discern and critically consider sources of information online and how their usage thereof informs their behavior. But how does this generation learn the skills and rules of the road it needs to navigate cyberspace in a safe, responsible, and informed manner: From the digital immigrants that have come before them or from the digital natives that surround them? Are current efforts in teaching enough, or do we need to create new, comprehensive approaches to digital citizenship and media literacy?
