Choose Civility 2015
Would You Say That to My Face? And Other Questions of Online Citizenship. As technology increasingly shapes and informs how we interact with each other online, how can we foster positive communication through social media, and how we can encourage people to make good choices about the information they share? What does it mean to be a good digital citizen, and what impact does our online presence have on our off-line reputation? How and why do our online and offline personas differ? Could our online personas benefit from more deliberate thought about how we portray ourselves and interact with others? What role, if any, should civility play in our online personas? Hear a panel of national experts discuss these issues, and learn how social media users of all ages can cultivate and demonstrate digital civility, appropriate communication, and personal responsibility when using social media platforms. A Choose Civility event.
Our panel of experts includes Denise Lisi DeRosa, Tech Parenting Expert and Consultant; Professor Andrew Reiner, Towson University, and Dr. Mike Ribble, Digital Citizenship expert. Moderated by NPR's Korva Coleman.
