This podcast is a recording of a digital citizenship presentation for high school students shared by Dr. Wesley Fryer at Casady School in Oklahoma City on February 27, 2020. The goal of this talk was to encourage students to think more deeply and critically about their own identities, how those identities are shaped, and specifically how much power and influence we give other people and social media specifically when it comes to our perceptions of who we are and who we want to be. The Common Sense Media video, “Teen Voices: Who Are You on Social Media?” was shared during this presentation, and the audio from that video is included in this podcast. Please check the podcast shownotes for the link to the original video, as well as other wonderful resources from Common Sense on Digital Citizenship including a robust (and free) curriculum on digital citizenship for teachers and students differentiated by grade level. Also check out more resources we’ve shared on our school’s digital citizenship website,
