Digital Citizenship Symposium By: Rachel Snow On Wednesday, October 14, ESU10 hosted the Nebraska K-12 Digital Citizenship Symposium. One administrator (Mrs. Kluender), teacher (Mrs. Hunt), techie (Mrs. Moser), parent (Marie Sweley), and two students (myself and Christopher Paitz) attended the symposium. After registration and opening remarks, Karen Hasse (Attorney of Education Law) spoke to us about the importance of internet safety, and about abiding the laws that pertain to the online world. She informed us that threats (even those made as jokes) can always be assumed to be true by school administrators and you are not covered by 1st Amendment rights because the rights of others are being violated. We all split up for our first “Group Work Session.” HY[
