Title:
Digital Citizenship in the Information Age
Topic:
This workshop aims to create critical awareness of the implications of the consumption and production of information as related to living in a society that uses technology daily.
Summary:
The goal of this workshop is to create critical awareness of the implications of the consumption and production of information as related to living in a society that has changed on a technical and social front wherein there is now a convergence of technology. Traditionally, we were socialized by school, family and religion but now media significantly influences the formation of society and knowledge construction, production and consumption. Through this workshop, we aim to engage students in a discussion on current and future implications of living in an information society and our growing dependency on connectedness.
