How should digital citizenship be taught in higher education?

Based on the results of our FRQSC-funded research project on digital citizenship training in higher education, and on the AI ethics competency framework produced as part of a research project funded by the Pôle montréalais d’enseignement supérieur en intelligence artificielle, we will present what should be the core elements of appropriate digital citizenship training in colleges. Specifically, we will discuss digital citizenship awareness activities that have been developed to address the ethical, social and political issues raised by digital technology in higher education.

The researchers will present innovative tools developed to specifically measure the impact of ICT on students’ feelings of anxiety.
