Let’s discover what student-centered digital citizenship programming looks like. Hint: It does not include the term “digital citizenship!” In this edWebinar, Michelle Luhtala, Library Department Chair at New Canaan High School, CT, will interview Jackie Whiting, Library Media Specialist at Wilton High School, CT, to discover how her district approached building a digital citizenship curriculum from the ground up. Jackie will share what makes the curriculum student centered, new terminology to consider, reframed objectives, and what served as inspiration for their work. All librarians are invited to attend this live, interactive session.
