edWeb announces partnership with the first national Digital Citizenship Summit
The Digital Citizenship Summit is an all-day national conference focused on the safe, savvy, and ethical use of technology. Sessions will focus on a broad range of topics such as online reputation, empathy online, and proper social media use. The Summit will bring together educators, parents, administrators, students, organization leaders, and industry – all of the stakeholders focused on improving tech use.
The event is co-founded by David Ryan Polgar and Marialice B.F.X. Curran and will feature a diverse range of prominent speakers leading workshops, a panel discussion on the future of digital citizenship, and valuable networking opportunities with leaders from across the country.
Marialice B.F.X. Curran recently presented a webinar on edWeb, hosted by Common Sense Education, on the topic of Student Voice in Digital Citizenship, which is an excellent lead-in and conversation starter for the topics that will be covered in the conference.
Lisa Schmucki, founder of edWeb, commented, “edWeb hosts professional learning communities and webinars for educators on digital citizenship, and we hear every day from educators about the importance of not blocking online access, but helping students use online tools wisely. We are very excited that these topics will be addressed by a new national conference.”
Common Sense Education hosts a Digital Citizenship community on edWeb that has presented over 20 exceptional webinars on this topic that are all archived in the community with additional resources and discussion forums. Learning Bird is another organization that addresses digital citizenship in their edWeb community, The Digital Educator. edWeb’s community on Leadership 3.0 helps school leaders understand the important of social media as tool for student learning and school improvement.
