Miscommunication is a common occurrence online and on social media. Plus, being behind a screen makes it easier to say things they wouldn't say in person. So how do we help students avoid the pitfalls of digital drama? Help them learn tips on avoiding online drama in the first place and de-escalating drama when it happens.

Students will be able to:
  • Reflect on how easily drama can escalate online.
  • Identify de-escalation strategies when dealing with digital drama.
  • Reflect on how digital drama can affect not only oneself but also those around us.
