OCTOBER CHAT QUESTIONS: #BecomingDigitalLeaders
1. What are the qualities of a digital citizen? A digital leader? (How do you become a digital leader?)
2. What responsibilities do you have as a digital citizen? A digital leader?
3. Why is being a digital leader important, and how can it affect your future?
4. Why do you think we need digital leaders?
5. Describe a time when you were positively influenced by someone else’s leadership online? (Tag or give a shout out to someone you think is modelling this for others)
*The same questions will be used for the Slow Chat all month long. We recommend classes spend time answering the questions ahead of time so time during the chat can be spent liking tweets, retweeting, quoting tweets in reply, and collaborating with others.
