On November 12, 2019 Future Ready Schools® held a Webinar on Digital citizenship which is so much more than internet safety. This webinar covered how librarians and students are “turning the page” on the old digital citizenship conversation. The NEW digital citizenship requires us to be informed, active members of digital communities who can thoughtfully reflect on our relationship with technology (and with one another!) in an increasingly connected world. In this webinar, Shannon McClintock Miller, and her special guests, had an informative, exciting and fun conversation around digital citizenship.

They covered:

  1. What skills do digital citizens need to be successful?
  2. How can librarians be champions of this work?
  3. What digital citizenship successes can you celebrate?
  4. What does an empowered digital citizen look like?

    This was a great webinar that supports what I’m learning in my graduate course that includes technology and digital citizenship (I am studying LIS to become a teacher librarian).It gave me some great ideas of how to apply the concepts that not only I am learning about in my course but what I even learned from just this hour! I am also excited to talk with my teacher librarian about getting some of those picture books into our collection.
