Engaging Families in Digital Citizenship Initiatives

Don't just talk at families - engage them! Do you avoid digcit conversations because you feel like you must know the right answers? The good news is, you don't! Digcit is not black and white and there is no playbook. Let’s invite families to a conversation instead of a presentation. In this session you will experience a condensed version of a digcit family event that puts participants at the center of the action and the school as the guide on the side. Leave with great ideas you can easily implement. Session recorded during the 2021 AASL National Conference.
