Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

This session will address the needs of schools/districts on a plan for digital citizenship. With the experience of districts and organizations over many years working on digital citizenship projects has created this roadmap for the future of technology in schools. In this session there will be specific lesson plans and explanations of those projects that did work and those that were not as successful. This will go beyond talking about the topic and will show how it should be implemented.


Content and activities: The content will be a collaboration of information from various organizations both in the US and Canada. The focus will be a longitudinal look at the past seven years worth of work on this topic. The session will be broken into three segments: First, organization in the school and community; Second, lessons and levels of integration; Finally, plans for higher education and the future.
Time: The time will be equally split between the three main areas.
Process: The participants will be asked to begin a process that would occur at the building/district level. Those attending would have an understanding of the larger project and its plans.
