Whether it’s summer or not, digital citizenship skills are something that adults and children alike should be practicing every day as citizens of the world. Common Sense Media identifies six areas of digital citizenship, including digital footprint, media balance, cyberbullying, online privacy, communications, and news and media literacy. In a recent edWebinar, Heather Barnard, a Digital Learning Leader at Stamford American International School in Singapore, explains that teachers need to help parents and students prepare for the use of devices and the internet during the summer months. Parents need to know what tools are out there to help with screen time, setting limits, forms of cyberbullying, multi-user games, and YouTube.
In this edWebinar, join Heather Barnard, Digital Learning Leader and Common Sense Ambassador, who will provide an international perspective on continuing the digital citizenship discussion through the summer.

During this engaging discussion, our speakers will take us on an adventure to explore the skills of understanding, empathy and effective dialogue.
