Digital citizenship should be more than anti-bullying programs. Our students are stressed out, vulnerable, gullible and filled with fear of missing out. Julie will share coping strategies for helping your students through this minefield: tools for evaluating the authenticity of online information, tips for helping students conquer FOMO and ideas for creating stronger passwords. Examples include 1Password, Emergent, Trendsmap, Google Reverse Image Search, Verification Junkie and more. We need to "elevate" digital citizenship education to go way beyond "cyberbullying". The issues go so much deeper, and we need to "evolve" so we can "educate" our students in this engaging way.
