Event Recap 

We connected with students and educators who are successfully modeling the new DigCitCommit competencies and heard how their experiences are empowering learners to lead in the digital world.

The two-day event featured: inspiring keynotes; youth leaders and educator presenters; lightning rounds on each of the DigCitCommit competencies; and spotlights of successful digcit initiatives.

Taking part in the congress is one way you can join our global campaign to redefine digital citizenship and reach 1 million students worldwide by 2021!

Attendee engagement is critical. Regardless of how you tuned in, we want to hear from you! Follow along with the DigCitCommit Virtual Congress Action Planners (1) and (2) to share your ideas with #DigCitCommit and @DigCitCommit on Twitter.
