How can educational technology prepare students to be global citizens of the future? This session will dive into projects that go beyond digital citizenship to use technology in innovative ways to help students develop empathy for others. Ethical behavior is an outcome of identifying with other people, and students of all ages can learn about ethics in the context of cross-curricular projects that include both digital and physical components. Breakthroughs in AI, bio-hacking, robotics, media manipulation, and digital fabrication offer interesting opportunities for students to learn about the cutting edge of science, and how ethical decision-making can make the world a better place for all.
