Active Citizenship – part 2

The second workshop of Drs. Pieter Hogenbirk and Dr Conor Galvin was oriented at the exploration  the challenges of things like identity issues in relation to digital lives and active citizenship. The discussion in small groups led by Dr Conor Gavin touched topics of digital citizenship, questions of privacy / visibility, ‘footprint’, ownership of the digital self, levels of citizenship , etc.

The topic of digital citizenship has been really interesting for the discussing teachers because they realise how important it is to know how act when we are online, and what should be taught to the next generation.  All of the audience agreed there is a need to talk about responsible use of technology. The workshop was really useful and inspiring.

  1. A very interesting workshop discussing the value of citizenship and the development/metamorphosis into digital citizenship and the responsibility and awareness needed to work effectively.

  2. Thanks for the kind comment Diannah. The group in our workshop was a pleasure to work with — wish all my conference experiences could be so challenging & enjoyable!
