Digital citizenship is about human connections online.
We view digital citizenship as an action, something that we need to practice and do every single day. In today’s networked world, this is our opportunity to put global education into practice to empower others to become change makers for using tech for good in local, global, digital communities.
Digital citizenship promotes the importance of being critical thinkers and solution creators who make a positive impact. In doing so, digital citizenship is about the heart of being human, creating ripples of good, continuously learning side by side and that when we work together, we are better together.
Why Attend the DigCit Summit?
The DigCit Summit provides the ideal gathering space for national and international Digital Citizenship influencers. The meeting format will be different than the usual conference. We will create conversations about concepts and opportunities with a goal toward cultural change.
The Summit will foster cross-sector collaboration around Positive DigCit. The purpose of the additional free events is to involve not only the attendees but also the public/community.
