It will address teachers’ understanding of digital environments as well as the digital literacies and digital citizenship skills pupils need (examples include critical thinking, network literacy, self-regulation, positive footprint) for positive and effective content creation, communication, collaboration, participation. The workshop will also share creative and pupil-centred approaches to promoting cyber wellness and wellbeing online and offline. It will provide insights into how schools can develop a whole-school culture of digital citizenship which embraces positive values and behaviours.

The workshop will feature ‘live-blogging’ so teachers can gain practical insights into how such tools can be used for reflective practice. All attendees will also gain access to a specially created Google site with links to further resources.
