Joining over 24,000 education professionals, our team attended the 2018 International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Conference. Hosted this year in Chicago, the Windy City served as a beautiful backdrop for learning, networking and eating plenty of deep dish pizza.
Within moments of the conference opening, ISTE CEO Richard Culatta, challenged attendees to see a new world in which each educator took digital citizenship to a new level. He specifically called out the difference between online safety and digital citizenship, stating that digital citizenship is not about a list of DON’TS. Instead, digital citizenship is about a list of DO’S.

Culatta challenged every attendee to consider making a commitment to expand digital citizenship in 2018 and to share those responses on social media by using the hashtag #DigCitCommit

My goal is to do exactly what tonight’s message as been: teach students to use technology to share the positive & make a difference in the lives of others! #ISTE18 #DigCitCommit pic.twitter.com/Pd0yTN8fsc

My one thing that I can do to promote #digcit is to encourage educators to see social media as a powerful tool that when used responsibly gives this generation the power to change the world. #iste18 #digcitcommit
