Dr. Mike Ribble will discuss Being Digital Citizens in the Age of Technology, AI and Research in Higher Education.
The expansion of technology and specifically Artificial Intelligence has changed how many in the education field see and use information. With the ability to have tools generate and manipulate data, there is a question: who or what created what we read, see or believe? It is imperative for all users of technology, and higher education research specifically, to have a compass or guide on what is being created and shared. Digital Citizenship sets the framework of what we as users produce is representative of the work we have accomplished and recognize what is created by others. Digital technology are the tools used to help share our ideas with others in a responsible frame.
