Social Media: Preparing Students for Today's Digital Dilemmas

Wednesday, April 20, 2022 - 9:00-9:30 am PDT

Young people are constantly navigating online dilemmas that don't always have right or wrong answers. What does it mean to be a good friend in a social media world? How should they respond to online hate speech? In this session attendees will be introduced to the following resources: 

1. A lesson plan from the Common Sense Education K-12 digital citizenship curriculum

2. Digital life dilemmas and thinking routines 

3. Activities from our SEL in digital life resource center 

Educators can use these resources to help students develop skills and dispositions to respond to real-world dilemmas in thoughtful, effective, and empathetic ways.
