Nebraska K-12 Digital Citizenship Symposium  

October 23, 2013
Leaving a Positive Digital Footprint is the theme for this year’s Nebraska K-12 Digital Citizenship Symposium, to be held on Wednesday, December 11, 2013. The Symposium will be held simultaneously at three locations:  ESU 10 in Kearney, Lifelong Learning Center in Norfolk, and ESU #13 in Scottsbluff. The Symposium begins at 8:50 a.m. with dismissal at 3:00 p.m. (check-in from 8:25-8:50 a.m.).

Districts are invited to send a team consisting of an administrator, teacher, parent, technology coordinator, and two students (maximum of six members) to one of the three sites. There will be several breakout sessions for each diverse group with a culminating activity bringing district teams back together to discuss, share and develop their own district vision statement to guide local policy development regarding digital citizenship.
Keynote speakers will set the stage for the group discussions where each diverse group will share perceptions, knowledge and insights as they consider various legal issues, resources, and responsibilities that each audience has in “Leaving a Positive Digital Footprint.”

The keynote speakers include: Jon Bruning, Nebraska Attorney General, Karen Haase, Attorney of Education Law for Harding and Schultz P.C., L.L.O; Bill Price, Nebraska State Patrol, Jeremy Nielsen, Omaha Public Schools, and SuAnn Witt, State E-Rate Coordinator, Nebraska Department of Education.
