Afternoon Keynote: What is Cybercitizenship?

Nowadays we can't escape the online world. That means we need to adapt our society and education to that reality and teach ourselves how to become good cyber citizens. While citizenship irl is easy to teach and consequences feel real, the rules of digital citizenship are more vague. Unfortunately, the damage done is usually private, even if the harassment is out in the open. Unlike a broken window or a stolen car, the evidence of misbehavior is subtle. Microaggressions are shrugged off. Toxic behaviors are passed off for inside jokes. Cyberbullying is under-reported.

In her keynote, Miss Harvey will explore the definition of digital citizenship, cornerstone concepts that support it and the small changes that each of us can make today for a better digital tomorrow.
