Past event

Towards tomorrow’s successful digital citizens: A policy think tank



This one day forum will examine:

  • How social informatics is taught in both the United Kingdom, and in other countries? Furthermore, how could it be taught in the future?
  • What the teaching of social informatics will mean for 14-19 year olds, students in higher education, teachers in training, and teachers working professionally in the field, educational researchers and people with an interest in pedagogy.

The day will involve a series of short presentations from invited key speakers and discussions. The morning will be a panel debate. The afternoon will include discussion groups to address policy and practice issues . The day’s outcome will be to deliver a number of potential ways forward (including potential policy messages; blogs; a short report on the key ensuing issues and topics; directions for particular associations; paper contributions to a special issue of a journal).

The day’s premise will be: “This house believes the importance of digital values are not emphasised sufficiently in today’s digital curriculum”. All the speakers will be asked to describe their expertise to speak on this domain, and will answer three questions:

  • What is important today with regard to policy on digital literacy, digital wisdom and digital citizenship?
  • What will be important in the future?
  • How do we get to that future?
