In today’s work is there anything more important than giving our students the ability to grow, learn, and be successful in the future?  When you look at mission statements for districts, as I do for my job as I tour the United States, SO many of them talk about digital citizenship, global citizenship, preparing students for success, etc.

Yuhyun Park recently addressed this topic in her post for the World Economic Forum called “8 digital life skills all children need – and a plan for teaching them”.

Here are the 8 digital skills:

  1. Digital citizen identity
  2. Screen time management
  3. Cyber-bullying management
