Digital Citizenship for Educators

When: Wednesday 1 June 20:00 Sydney time (gmt+10)

About the session:- Australia Series eT@lking event for Wednesday 1st June will unpack what it takes to be a responsible digital citizen in 21st century education. This session will be in interview style with questions posed for selected audience members to brainstorm a list of digital citizenship skills for educators.

The entire audience will form  ‘focus groups‘  to discuss the impact of responsible digital citizenship skills in education and lifelong learning. Each member of the audience will gain access to an online Dropbox designed to provide a suite of resources on Digital Citizenship. (Note: This requires your email address, so if you want to have access to the Dropbox please leave a comment below with your contact details. Or email CoachCarole.)

This event will also feature the use of breakout rooms in Elluminate Live to divide the audience into ‘focus groups’ with a leader and their own brainstorming whiteboard.

If you enjoyed last week’s eT@lking session on Google Gathering come back and share your ideas on the ‘impact of using Google tools’ and other Cloud Computing strategies (like Dropbox) responsibly.
