This webinar recording is from the ISTE Professional Learning Series. It aired on Wednesday, October 11, 2017.

The Citizen standard in the new ISTE Standards for Educators calls for inspiring students to positively contribute to and responsibly participate in the digital world. While we commonly encourage and advocate for students to positively contribute, responsibly participate and think critically about their digital lives, how are we building the capacity of educators to do the same in their use of social media both personally and professionally? This webinar will explore how educators can model and embody digital citizenship daily.

Presented by the ISTE Digital Citizenship Network.
