How can young people use social media as a force for good?

Digital Citizenship is a highly interactive learning experience that shows the power of a strong collective response to divisive social conflict. Drawing on real world case studies from Twitter and the United Nations, the experience is delivered in-school by highly skilled High Resolves educators and is designed to achieve cognitive, affective and behavioural outcomes.

Through the experience students will:

  • Understand how the internet and social media can be used to awaken and mobilise public opinion towards positive social change
  • Feel confident that they can resist any divisive or hateful messages with a stronger, positive, collective response
  • Adopt and adhere to a personal code of conduct when using internet and social media

Signature Activity: Tipping Point

Using detailed content from Twitter and UN Women, students explore the genesis and aftermath of the #HeForShe online movement in order to understand the role they need to play in creating a positive collective response to a social justice issue on a global scale.

I have a lot more knowledge and understanding of world issues and how they are continuously becoming worse. I have been motivated to make the world a better place. I used to think it was un-saveable but now I am willing to fight for it.
