Last Spring, Media Smart Libraries and EdTechRI hosted a regional event in Barrington, RI called "Navigation our Digital Lives: In School and Beyond." This event was geared towards parents, educators & administrators to discuss topics such as student privacy, safety, & digital citizenship. It was an honor to join a panel of experts in this field, many of whom are leaders right here in Rhode Island.
One of my key takeaways from the event was the need to establish a stronger relationship and dialogue across all stakeholders in a school district to address both the promise of educational technologies as well as the potential dangers and how we can all play a role in keeping children safe in an increasingly digital world.
