1. Why should students be global digital citizens in today’s world?
2. How can we manage the impact of our “digital footprint?” (positive or negative)
3. How can digital citizenship promote diversity?
4. What are your strategies to handle cyberbullying?
5. As responsible Digital Citizens, how can we help people in different parts of the world lead better lives using technology and teamwork to help local and global communities?

*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.
