As a part of the ECIS ICT Committee Pre-Conference, John Mikton (IT Director at ISP) and I presented two sessions on Developing and Implementing a Digital Citizenship Program at your School. The two sessions focused on :
1) Framing the issues around behaviors regarding technology
2) Giving concrete examples of how the use of technology can enhance or harm the human experience
3) Analysis of the Acceptable Use Policies (or as stated by ISP as our Digital Citizenship Agreements) and where they explicitly state what being a Digital Citizen means
4) Analysis of the way Digital Citizenship is taught in a school and strategies to operationalize the teaching and programming at a school.
The feedback from the sessions was very positive. Many thanks to all other presenters during the pre-conference day, especially Patrick Green for the development and use of other slides during the presentation.
