Use digital dilemmas and thinking routines to empower students in their digital lives.
Young people are constantly navigating digital dilemmas, which don't always have right or wrong answers. How much connection is too much? What does it mean to be a good friend in a social media world? How should they respond to online hate speech? Based on research by Carrie James and Emily Weinstein at Project Zero at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, the middle and high school Digital Citizenship Curriculum includes digital dilemmas and thinking routines. Educators can use these resources to help students develop skills and dispositions to respond to real-world dilemmas in thoughtful, effective, and empathetic ways.
