Digital citizenship is a multidisciplinary subject that touches many fields. Its broad definition leads it to have various interpretations and perceptions among educators, policymakers, parents, and leaders. This edWebinar, taught by the co-authors of the forthcoming ISTE book, Deepening Digital Citizenship: From Policy to Practice, discusses the concept of “symbolic frame.”
Through this change-management framework, stakeholders can consider how their understanding of digital citizenship is developed and sustained. It also provides a lens to understand digital citizenship as a concept that extends beyond safety and security, facilitating stakeholder interpretations of what it means to be a digital citizen. This edWebinar will share real-life stories and examples from scaling digital citizenship and working with many different people of varying perceptions, values, and visions of digital citizenship in order to create systemwide change.
This edWebinar will be of interest to K–12 teachers and school and district leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
