MEDEAnet Webinar: Digital Ethics
As great as the internet is, it also involves new challenges when it comes to concepts of right and wrong. Digital ethics is dealing with the social code on the internet. What is appropriate “digital” behavior? What have teachers to consider when using media in education? In this MEDEAnet webinar Donald Heider from the Loyola University, Chicago, USA and Natasha Whiteman from the University of Leicester, UK will introduce you to the concepts of digital ethics and how it can be applied in the classroom.
This webinar was held on 10 April 2014 and was attended by 36 people from 10 countries.
