Digital Citizenship is a researched-based practice that helps educators, community leaders and parents to understand the importance of blending character and technology skills for all learners. Today’s technology users should be responsible digital citizens, empowered to be engaged in confident and positive activities while using technology.
We are dedicated to the advancement of digital citizenship education in schools and our larger society, and are excited to present this unique, collaborative event. A Weekend of Digital Citizenship will bring together students, educators, parents and business leaders to develop a community-based approach in raising responsible and positive digital citizens in our society.
Several hundred people are expected to attend this two-day event, featuring a dozen expert speakers, interactive workshops, panel discussions and collaborative digital projects that will spotlight current online and offline issues. We’ll help participants with wisdom and activities that can be used at home, school, work and play. Register for one of the two days separately or attend both for a special combo price!

How do the artists work? Where do their ideas come from? What media do they employ and why? How is their perspective different from, and similar to, other contemporary artists working today?
Join HEC-TV LIVE! for an interactive tour of “Bring Me a Lion,” a contemporary exhibition of Indian Art showing at Webster University’s Hunt Gallery from March 19 to April 17, 2010. Students will interact with Tushar Joag, one of the most prominent contemporary Indian artists to date, and see examples of his work. They will also meet the curator for “Bring Me A Lion” as they view other works also included in the exhibition. As they view the works, students will be invited to experience what it means to be a “contemporary artist” working in and/or influenced by the country of India and Indian culture and history.
