From dutiful to enlightened: Developing a next generation course in Digital Citizenship
Tuesday, March 26 4:00 PM-5:00 PM
Citizenship concepts in a curriculum for an online course in digital citizenship for pre-service and in-service teachers are presented to frame a next generation and global view of digital citizenship. Topics include traditional concepts of citizenship, research on how digital life and other social developments are affecting beliefs and practices of teachers and students as citizens, and how extensions to a global, digitally facilitated view of enlightened digital citizenship is emerging. Taken together, the concepts form the basis for an online course introducing the next generation of digitally facilitated citizenship.
