Inspired by our 'From the Classroom to the Boardroom' panel last year during our 4th Annual #DigCitSummit, we connected panelists on stage at Webster University with virtual panelists around the world. The panelists talked about corporate social responsibility, media literacy, global education, parenting in the digital age, emerging technologies, and social emotional learning with both a live and virtual audience. It was at that moment, we knew we wanted to host our 5th Annual #DigCitSummit online during #DigCitWeek, so we could continue to connect and learn with our global community.
.In partnership with EduMatch, we will host our online #DigCitSummit during the week of October 14 - 18th. Each day we will (1) connect classrooms, (2) share #DigCitIMPACT talks, and (3) host Tweet & Talk panels.
Classroom Connections Around the World
Classrooms around the world will teach other classrooms how they put digital citizenship into action in their PK-12 classrooms and beyond. Wednesday, October 16th will feature all Spanish speaking classrooms with our partners EduKtech in Mexico and iWomanish in Spain.
We will connect classrooms 3 hours each day. Each day we have changed the start time by an hour to accommodate time zones. Presenting classrooms should plan to challenge other classrooms to do digital citizenship. The entire week will be full of connections, ideas, projects, and a call to action. Be sure to use and follow #DigCitSummit fo updates.
If you are interested in learning with us, register today. We are currently looking for classrooms to present. All you need to participate is a computer, laptop or device and Wi-Fi. An added bonus would be speakers to amplify voices and a screen to display, but these items are not necessary. We will be sending links to join the livestream each day.
Each day we'll also share #DigCitIMPACT talks which are 7 minute prerecorded stories about making an IMPACT in local, global, and digital communities. On Wednesday, October 16th all #DigCitIMPACT talks will be in Spanish. Interested in sharing your #DigCitIMPACT? Sign up today.
Tweet & Talk Panel with EduMatch
Join EduMatch for Tweet & Talk panels each night at 7 pm EST. We are assembling a diverse group of panelists and topics to discuss daily during our #DigCitSummit offerings. On Wednesday, October 16th our Tweet & Talk panel will be in Spanish.
We are looking forward to learning with you during #DigCitWeek!
