Session Description: Digital citizenship is multi-faceted and complex. From managing your digital footprint and dealing with safety and cyberbullying issues to ethical practices around copyright, plagiarism, and citation, students and teachers navigate new and sometimes treacherous ground as they learn with technology.
This session was designed to gather input from students, teachers and teacher-librarians to inform a new digital citizenship resource from TALCO, to be launched from the TALCO website in the spring of 2014. The resource will also be closely connected to the Together for Learning website.
