Digital Citizenship in Today's Libraries
Tuesday, May 4, 2021
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST
In today's world, information is communicated and learned through a wide variety of media channels and sources, most of which are through some sort of electronic or digital device. Therefore, becoming media and information literate requires a new set of digital skills that is ever evolving as technology changes at a rapid pace. Mastering these new skills, is what prepares students, patrons, and everyone in our communities to become digital citizens. In this course, we will define what it means to be a digital citizen, followed by deep dives into the nine elements of digital citizenship. Throughout the discussion we will identify services and programming opportunities that libraries of all types can provide to help promote digital citizenship in their communities.
