Join us for a Weekend of Digital Citizenship #digcitweekend
at Webster University
September 21 & 22, 2018
What is a DigCitSummit?
The Digital Citizenship Summit is a gathering of digital citizenship enthusiasts and influencers from around the world.
Who Should Attend? The DigCitSummit builds connections among four critical stakeholders namely, students, educators, parents and business leaders. This multiple stakeholders approach provides an opportunity to address the positive ways to address social media and technology use as a community.
Come join us for two days of learning, collaborating and networking about Digital Citizenship! On Friday, METC, a resource of EducationPlus, will be hosting their 3rd annual DigCitDay and on Saturday, the Digital Citizenship Institute, a consortium of international educators, will host their 4th DigCitSummit. It’s going to be a weekend that brings together digital citizenship advocates and experts to our host partner, Webster University.
A Weekend of Digital Citizenship will feature expert speakers and interactive workshops centered around global digital citizenship. Panel discussions and breakout sessions will spotlight current online and offline issues and bring insights to participants that can be used at home, school, work and play.
Register for one of the two days separately or attend both days for a special combo price!
See you in St. Louis for a Weekend of Digital Citizenship!

A Six-Pack Mind: Practical Resilience in the Workplace with Tofe Evans
There will be a time in your life where you face a crisis; a recession, a loss of customer, a bad business deal, or even the betrayal of a work colleague. So how do we deal with these high-stressful moments? That’s where you will learn about Practical Resilience to guide you mentally out of these adversarial and dismal situations. #PracticalResilience #SixPackMind
The Butterfly Effect: Transforming Tragedy into Positive Connected Change - The Wingman Social Network with Ian Hockley and Justin McGlamery
Participants will learn about Wingman For Schools, a youth centric, student led approach to social and emotional learning. In this workshop, using social networks as a metaphoric device to engage people in face-to-face, active and reflective activities, participants will engage in both light-hearted fun and deeper discussions about the “Social networks” we use and how we must be good people on both sides of the screen to be good digital citizens. This “social network”activity can be used and adapted in many different ways for different outcomes and objectives, including but not limited to: processing/facilitation skill development, sequencing, creativity, collaboration, and a deeper understanding of Digital Citizenship and how we as group facilitators can impact that in our face-to-face connections with groups.
The Building Blocks of Inclusion with David Pollard
Empathy, diversity and collaboration are needed to create such environments. Inclusive physical spaces are essential, but online communities have grown in the past decade and accessibility challenges have arisen in these virtual environments too. We are witnessing the potential and limitations of social media and online platforms. There are lessons to be learned from both online and offline environments that can help us to create more accessible environments for the present and the future.
2:15 - 3:15 pm Breakout Session II
When the Teachers Cup Runs Out with Mandy Froehlich
Teachers often put the needs of their students and colleagues first which leaves them little time to refill their own cups. But, in order for us to be everything we can possibly be for our students, we need to recognize our own mental health needs as well. This session will focus on the fallout from ignoring our own mental health, what to look for in cases of burnout or secondary traumatic stress, and ways we can combat the issues beyond mindfulness.
Ripples of Impact: Working Across Sectors and Across Generations to Grow the Positive Digital Citizenship Movement with Michelle Linford

This workshop can enable you to leave this Summit with actionable ideas to work with others to grow a Positive Digital Citizenship Movement.
