#digcit Twitter Party Recap

Project Administrator, Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI)

Yesterday we hosted our first-ever Twitter party and boy, was it a blast!

We asked parents, educators, experts, and everyone in between to join us for a discussion on digital citizenship. The turnout was fantastic and in an hour our partygoers covered quite a lot of ground – Tweeting answers to tough questions like what is digital citizenship, why is it important, and how do we teach it?

GDP Blog - in body - #Digcit Twitter Party Recap

For those of you who couldn’t make the party, we archived the Tweets. (Warning: it's not the prettiest looking page but we'll work on making it better for next time.) There are over 800 to go through but trust us, it’s worth it. Our friends unpacked some big questions and Tweeted out some fantastic resources to help parents, teachers, and teens learn more about good digital citizenship. We highly recommend that you take a look at their Tweets and follow them on Twitter if you see something you like.

For those of you reading this who participated in the party, we want you to know that you helped us trend the hashtag #digcit. Don’t believe it? This screenshot doesn't lie!

Whether you missed it or made it, we plan to have other parties like this in the future and hope to see you there!

Have a topic you’re dying to Tweet about or questions you want us to ask? Leave it in the comment section and we’ll find a way to work them into the theme of our next party.
