Digital Citizenship isn't an expression often heard outside of school. The ways in which it's discussed in mainstream media are quite different from how it's discussed in schools. Most often the popular press shares sensational negative stories how kids use the internet and their phones to hurt each other.
How do we have open and honest conversations about how things can and have gone wrong and what we can do to make things better in the aftermath of things like cyberbullying, online harassment, or sexting? It's a far more powerful message to talk to kids and parents about how engendering empathy helps us understand each other so we choose not to hurt each other. It's also important to share stories and ideas how our modern mobile technologies empower us to effect positive change in the world around us in ways that weren't possible not long ago.
What does this week’s parsha, written long ago, have to teach us about the power of our digital devices today, and using them more thoughtfully?
Kids need more models of empathy and empowerment. Parents do too.
