Promoting Digital Citizenship and Online Wellness in your Middle School
Presenters: Kim Karr and Malorie Bournazian
Thursday, February 18, 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm EST
In today’s connected world there is an ever growing importance to educate, empower and celebrate students online. We know with so many students connected and engaged online can come at a cost with student drama and discipline. However, we know the good outweighs the bad and that the apps we use are only as good as the people who use them. This webinar will aim to help you teach digital citizenship and wellness skills to you and your school community families to become digital leaders. Learn how to integrate conversations or teachable moments in your school or home so you can model and guide appropriate online behavior. The webinar experts host Digital4Good, which celebrates students who are using digital technology to make a positive impact in their communities.
||This webinar is being offered in partnership with the Pennsylvania Association for Middle Level Education to provide participants with Act 48 continuing professional education credit. You will receive an email after the webinar with details on how to obtain your credit.
