Why Digital Citizenship For Elementary Students?

Let’s reimagine education to raise a world of global citizens.
Too many of us grew up without support to practice understanding.
Understanding diverse people, cultures, feelings, mindsets, perspectives & ways of life.
Without support to practice curiosity before judgment.
Without support to deeply sense. Instead, we were told we’re too sensitive.
Without support in learning to learn for life.
Too much instructing. Not enough guiding.
Too much what to think. Not enough how to wonder.
Too much “don’t show emotions”. Not enough embracing feelings.
Too much “be strong”. Not enough healing.
Brainstorming without “heartstorming”.
We need digital citizenship education for our hearts.
Without building our empathy and curiosity muscles, our ability to see one another as unique, whole, and complex humans starts to wither away.
That leads to knots in our chests, bullying, prejudice, and bias. Judgment. Discrimination. Dehumanization. Conflict.
Violence and war in our hearts and minds. In thought, word, and action.
Trying to address our global challenges with wit and new ideas can feel good, but only for so long.
We can innovate to re-distribute all of our food and all of our funds, but how long will this last and what peace will it bring if we still hold on to bias, judgment, prejudice, ignorance, or hate deep in our hearts and minds?
That’s why digital citizenship education is necessary for every one of us, ages 2 and up:
To love lifelong learning about self, others, and our world.
To learn to love self, others, and our world — and our deep interconnections.
To understand ourselves and each other through all of our complex and beautiful differences.
To learn to resolve conflict. To be at peace with ourselves and others.
To suspend judgment and truly see one another. To humanize. To heal together.
