E204 - Critical Digital Citizenship for School Libraries

3:15 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Mark Roquet, Outreach and Programming Librarian, Yolo County Library

Digital citizenship education typically covers topics such as staying safe online, fighting cyberbullying, and copyright law awareness. Notably, many popular digital citizenship curricula are either created or funded by Silicon Valley companies. Engaged citizenship requires more than following rules and avoiding conflict—it means having the knowledge and agency to make society better. In order to be impactful citizens, our students need to understand the major forces that continue to reshape our society, economy, and information landscape. How can we prepare our students to tackle discriminatory algorithms, online harassment, the sharing economy, and digital threats to our democracy? Join us for an open-ended discussion about how we can rethink digital citizenship to prepare students to be change makers rather than just consumers.
