Digital Citizenship in the Time of COVID-19: What educators can do

The Digital Citizenship Institute and Belouga in celebration of World Teachers Day in Nigeria, are bringing together the most dynamic and innovative education leaders and technology professionals from around the world to examine the subject: Digital Citizenship in the Time of COVID-19: What teachers can do. The thought leaders will share new ideas on innovative ways of teaching students to maintain positive, safe, legal, and ethical behaviors online.

And This is coming against the background of the shutdown of schools because of the Covid-19 pandemic, which has resulted in an increasing number of students and teachers engaging in the growing use of digital tools and technologies during teaching and learning.

We know that some students and teachers are engaged in some form of online learning or schooling, but others are not because of the digital divide. So big questions continue to be raised regarding unequal access to functioning devices (like computers, tablets, etc), adequate internet, and other remote-learning essentials.

This online summit is a great opportunity to engage with thought leaders and pioneers who are leading the charge in how best to engage safely online.

From problem-solving through collaboration, to personalized learning and gaining the fundamentals about the importance of digital citizenship education and learning ways to support digital citizenship, this will be for you a comprehensive professional learning experience.
