Digital Citizenship: New Roles and Responsibilities in the Digital Age

A webinar defining 'digital citizenship' and exploring ways for public libraries to support services and programming to help grow safe, responsible, and respectful digital environments.

This event has passed.

Today’s digital world is redefining “citizenship.” All of us—from digital natives to later adopters—need to learn how to be good citizens, to be safe, responsible and respectful participants in this new world. Digital citizenship requires a whole-community approach among parents, kids, librarians, educators, and the broader community. In this webinar, explore the vital connection between Digital Citizenship and Public Libraries. Learn about free digital citizenship resources provided by Common Sense Education covering a range of topics including Internet Safety, Cyberbullying, Digital Footprints, Copyright, and more. Digital Citizenship Week is coming October 19-25…how will your library be participating?

Presented by: Kelly Mendoza, Senior Manager, Professional Development, Common Sense Media; and Kelly Czarnecki, Teen Services Librarian, Charlotte Mecklenburg Library (NC)

Start time: 1:00 Eastern / 10:00 Pacific [Note: Earlier start time]
