Teaching Digital Ethics
We live in a world where the exchange of information is brisk, persistent and unyielding. Over 95% of teens ages 12 – 17 are Internet users, with 80% of those youth regularly using social media sites to communicate with the world.
Given the amount of time students are spending online and in digital environments, it is becoming increasingly essential to give them the tools they need to make good decisions. In this panel four people with experience thinking about and teaching digital ethics come together to talk about ways in which we can engage students in meaningful discussions about digital behavior.
- What help can we give students in making ethical decisions online?
- What are the best tools for helping students develop their own digital ethics codes?
- What is digital ethics and what resources are available for instructors?
