Digital Citizenship

Gardner Campbell, Virginia Tech

 

Tuesday, March 6, 6:00 pm

Newman Vertical Campus, Room 14-280

 

Can computer networks give us the potential to improve the human condition through the wise use of increased free time, expanded brain function, and innovations that harness collective intelligence? If so, how can teaching, learning, and research improve our chances of realizing that potential? What can universities do to prepare students for productive and fulfilling lives as digital citizens?
