The Digital Citizenship Summit (DCS) will be a one-day event with four sessions on the theme of digital citizenship which is a timely topic for teachers, administrators, teacher librarians, and everyone who works with students. The DCS will include a session by spotlight speaker Gwyneth Jones, aka “The Daring Librarian,” as well as sessions by CSLA teacher librarians. In addition, DCS attendees will have full access to the exhibitor hall with nearly 200 vendors, concurrent speaker sessions, hands-on sessions, and poster sessions, not to mention the conference's featured speakers.
“We have been an educational partner of CSLA for years, and this project was the perfect fit. So many of our members are CLSA members and vice versa. DCS is a great way to bring everyone together,” said Mike Lawrence, CUE’s Executive Director.
According to Pam Oehlman, CSLA’s 2012-2013 Past President, “CSLA is delighted to have the opportunity to co-sponsor this summit and share about digital citizenship with CUE attendees, since helping students be good digital citizens and build positive digital footprints is so crucial to their futures. We need to make sure that students learn these skills early to avoid mistakes that could jeopardize their reputations and to prepare them to be contributors to our global society. Digital citizenship is also one of the teacher librarians’ areas of special expertise they offer to students and other educators.”
