Digital Citizenship Across the Content Areas 
Kristen Mattson
Wednesday, January 16th, 2019 at 7PM

So many educators think of digital citizenship as "one more thing" on their already full curricular plates. This doesn't need to be the case! In this webinar, you will be introduced to a plethora of ideas that range from incorporating social media etiquette into your elementary literacy block to teaching students about screen time in a middle school math class as well as using tech ethics as the basis for debates in a high school level social studies course. This webinar will have plenty of ideas for every content area and grade level ranging from quick bell-ringers to multi-day units of instruction. No matter who you are or what you teach, you are bound to walk away with some great ideas!
