R U Ready 2 Trust ’em? Why Access is Essential to Developing Citizenship among Millennials


Emerging TechCitizenship, including digital citizenship, is not learned through osmosis. Millennials have formidable capacity for 21st century learning – communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking. They excel in these areas when empowered to learn in an educational environment founded on respect and trust. Given the guidance to thrive, and permission to fail, students learn important lessons they will carry with them not just to college and career, but throughout life. In this edWeb.net Emerging Tech webinar, participants learned how trust can promote curiosity and transform learning.  Webinar presenter, Michelle Luhtala, Head Librarian at New Canaan High School, CT, discussed the importance of digital citizenship and the importance of balancing trust and guidance in the classroom.
