Episode 29: Social Media, Identity, & Civic Duty in the Classroom
Flávia Bastos and James Rees
Educators empower students to transform the world. From digital citizenship and democratic dialogue to addressing controversial topics, an educator’s role is to act as a facilitator for students to find and develop their voices. What students have to say is meaningful, they have a vision to share. The critical part of this is helping them understand their responsibility to think critically about their choices when sharing that vision, so their voice is heard as intended. During this episode, the Creativity Department speaks with the research team behind the Who Is American Today project, Flávia Bastos and James Rees. Discover what Critical Digital Citizenship looks like, what role it plays in student’s lives, and how art education prepares students to examine their identity and become critical digital citizens.Listen Now Resources
