Digital Citizenship Rights and Responsibilities: CATE Panel @CSSE 2019 – Michelle Schira Hagerman

Digital Citizenship Rights and Responsibilities: CATE Panel @CSSE 2019

Speaker Notes


I’m really privileged to participate in an open panel discussion on Rights and Responsibilities of Digital Citizenship at the Canadian Society for Studies in Education conference. I’ve posted my slides here plus a link to my speaker notes. The references that I’ve used to think through these remarks are offered here for anyone interested in some good reading that raises lots of questions for how we can design teacher education programs that address the first principle of Canada’s new Digital Charter — Universal Access.
