Show Notes

We’ve all been trained to look both ways when we cross the street, but what does it mean for students and for educators to look both ways before crossing a “digital street?” This episode of “Your Edtech Questions” explores the Digital Citizen standard from the ISTE Standards for Students and unpacks all aspects of digital citizenship, from using tech to make your community better, to engaging with people respectfully online, to determining the validity of online sources of information. Guest Kristin Mattson, Ph.D., digcit expert, author of Digital Citizenship in Action: Empowering Students to Engage in Online Communities and instructor for the ISTE U course Digital Citizenship in Action, defines digital citizenship, discusses the research behind it and provides tips for curriculum design to bring digcit to all subject areas. She also explains how social justice, media literacy and interacting on social media play into the new lens on digital citizenship that’s all about “do’s” rather than “don’ts.”
