This webinar is part of the October 2015 ISTE Professional Learning Series.

 Wondering how to embed digital citizenship into your classroom? In this interactive webinar, Dr. Marialice B.F.X. Curran, Associate Professor at the University of Saint Joseph, will provide examples on how to get more student voice involved in digital citizenship project-based learning (PBL) throughout the school year. Marialice works with K-12 students and teachers, administrators and parents to help students to think and act at a local, global and digital level simultaneously. Through her research, she has found that the combination of student voice and PBL promotes positive school climate. Marialice will field questions from attendees after her presentation. This session will be useful for teachers, teacher trainers, tech coaches, librarians, media specialists, and teachers on special assignment for digital citizenship.

Presented by the ISTE Digital Citizenship Network.
