Workshop: The Amplifying Effects of Digital Technologies on Human Capacities
Are today's children and youth, despite being called "digital natives" sometimes, literate in their role as digital citizens? What digital literacy do they need to meet the requirements of the digital age? What human capacities can they tap into to become more digitally literate?
Join us to explore these questions on Thursday, March 30, 2017 7:00 to 8:30pm at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto, 3rd Fl, Rm 3-322 (Lab 6), 252 Bloor St. W., Toronto.
The workshop will be facilitated by Ms. Helen Cheng, who is a lawyer and conflict resolution innovator whose work focuses on strengthening human interoperability in the digital age. She is a faculty member of the Justice Institute of British Columbia, and has lectured at Osgoode Hall Law School and other universities around the world. She completed her Master of Laws from Harvard Law School and her research is published in leading peer-reviewed scholarly journals. Helen is also a parent of two digital natives.
