I’m Engaged in Digital for Good!
Learning Target: I am learning to use technology for civic engagement and to be a force for good.
Our students are not only tech-savvy but they’re also becoming active digital citizens. They’re using technology to address issues that matter to them, a process we’re calling micro-activism.
Micro-activism refers to small, everyday actions people can take to support or advocate for a cause or issue. This could be as simple as being kind to someone online, signing an online petition, sharing a social cause on social media, or choosing to buy from companies that align with your values. It’s about making small changes that, collectively, can have a big impact.
While not all acts of micro-activism result in immediate change, the process of engaging with community issues using digital tools is a vital skill. As they grow, this ability to motivate others in a virtual space will be a key factor in their future civic leadership.
So, let’s encourage our students to continue using tech to make a difference. They’re not just our future leaders, they’re already leading the way!
