Description: This workshop examines some of the moral dilemmas that kids face in their online activities and shares some strategies to help them build the social and emotional intelligence that’s needed to support ethical decision making – and build resiliency if things go wrong. The tutorial focuses on respect for: people’s personal information by not oversharing; people’s feelings by not participating in bullying or being a passive bystander; and intellectual property by understanding copyright and plagiarism.
