The challenges and opportunities of technology in today’s interconnected world are constantly evolving. ICS is committed to guiding students and their families to understand the challenges, opportunities, and dangers of living in the digital age.
As we strive to educate internationally minded, responsible, and caring global citizens, we also work to foster the skills of digital citizenship so students can learn to make smart choices—online and in life.
Digital Citizenship at ICS
In 2019, ICS hosted an informational Conversation About Digital Citizenship where parents and teachers came together to discuss and gain a better understanding of the challenges screen devices present our youth. Topics included technology addiction, the impact of screen time on children’s developing brains, screens and mental health issues, inappropriate behaviors on social media, and the dangers of online predators.
Here are some resources for parents and caregivers related to screen devices. If you know of any additional resources you think are helpful, please email them to ICS Director Julie Nora.
