OETC18 Presentation Resources by Dr. Wesley Fryer
As our society increasingly relies upon digital communication technologies, we all share responsibility for having conversations with each other about the intersecting goals of digital citizenship. These include topics like safety, security and privacy, but also include health and wellness, copyright and intellectual property respect, digital literacy, information literacy, character education and ethics. Empowering student voice and agency as well as digital footprints and parenting are also important topics within the broad umbrella of digital citizenship education. In this keynote, Dr. Wes Fryer will highlight many of these topics teachers, parents and students need to be discussing and provide concrete strategies for sparking these conversations both inside and outside the classroom. Slides and referenced resources are available on http://DigCit.us. Please share feedback during and after the keynote on Twitter using the hashtag #DigCit as well as #OETC18.
