In an atmosphere where digital learning is increasingly becoming the norm, it is important to support our students with the skills they need to be successful in flexible learning communities. Although many students are comfortable with using technology, digital citizenship commits to developing a classroom with distinct digital culture, routines, and norms. Digital citizenship skills support students, teachers, and leaders in navigating the myriad of challenges and opportunities in a digital space, while learning how to thrive in these environments. 


This workshop is intended to support teachers, coaches, and leaders in developing skill sets of digital citizenship in students to create a safe and positive flexible learning community.
