I’m excited to be speaking at the first every Digital Citizenship Summit held in Canada. It’s being held in Toronto with a number of well known speakers and thinkers in the K-20+ digital citizenship spaces and places. It’s an opportunity to come together to have conversations about challenging topics, in these days of fake news and fact checking.
The other reason I’m excited about this event is that I’m holding a conversation rather than a presentation. It’s going to focus around citizenship as an open pedagogical practice. Rather than preparing a set of slides with information, I’ve set up some questions to guide the collaboration during the time we’re together. With references to some key resources, we’ll take a closer look at how shifting our students into open learning spaces and places can support our work to build citizenship into our teaching practices. Here’s a peek at the slides and I’ll add a link so you can access the information after the summit is over.
I’m looking forward to learning lots from those who’ll join me in this conversation. I’m excited to listen while others talk during this focused event.

This is the beginning of great conversations to come. Other places these conversations are happening:
