Limited Capacity seats available

With increasing use of digital technologies in and outside school, the digital world expands and integrates into various aspects of our lives. The digital footprints we left behind impact internet privacy, reputation, trust, and security. Being responsible digital citizens is critical in this age as we need to learn effectively, work efficiently and participate fully in a digitally mediated world. Do our students understand their roles and responsibilities in the digital society? How can schools help our students become responsible digital citizens and make a positive presence, both online and offline?

Hear from a panel of experts share on the youth behaviours in the Internet, and how students can be good and responsible digital citizens and educators’ role in guiding students to create a safer and healthy digital world for themselves and others.
