Digital Citizenship and Racial Justice: How Do They Connect?

Tuesday, July 20, 2021 - 11:00-11:45 am PDT

Our students have witnessed police brutality and other racist violence against Black communities and immigrant populations. These issues have a profound impact on our students’ health and well-being, and the effects in online spaces must be addressed. Join this edWebinar to learn more about the connection between the digital lives of our students and how we can:

  • Respect and invite individual identities
  • Build a collective community
  • Learn to confront bias and prejudice in the world by practicing digital dilemma scenarios

Both the lead and co-presenter are founding members of Equity in Action CA and associated with the digital citizenship resource provider, Common Sense. This presentation makes direct connections in digital citizenship (civic learning, SEL, and social media) and work in the field of racial equity. Learn more about how Equity in Action CA was formed and how educators might create their own action group to spur grassroots-driven change in their own community.

This edWebinar will be of interest to teachers, librarians, and school leaders of the elementary through high school levels. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
