Emerging Digital Citizens

Keynote Presenter: Chris Harbeck

We often talk about citizenship in school but rarely teach it formally. More & more often we are told to: "Think global and act local". Yet, in our increasingly digital world, our kids may not know our neighbours in the house next door nearly as well as they do their online friends a click and half-a-world away. Thinking local today means thinking global. Designing creative digital projects that fit into our curricula provides students opportunities to become better global citizens. As an educator, how important do you think it is to prepare students to be citizens in this new connected world?
