Librarians are pivotal in their schools for teaching and advocating digital citizenship. Attend this edWebinar to hear from a public librarian and two school librarians on teaching digital citizenship all year. This session, presented by the co-authors of the forthcoming book with ABC-CLIO, Advocating Digital Citizenship: Resources for the Library and Classroom, will help you develop a consistent practice of digital citizenship in your library.

The presenters will share resources and tools for planning, including a suggested scope and sequence. They will also give advice on getting colleague and administration support. Attendees will learn about real-life stories and lessons from practicing digital citizenship in a library. The new school year is starting soon, this edWebinar will help you be more prepared.

This edWebinar will be of interest to K-12 librarians and education technology leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
