Miller, Cynthia L.
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v110 n1 p45-48 Win 2018
Most secondary students use social media to connect with friends, but what if there was a way to show them how they can use social media to make a positive difference in the lives of others? This article will (a) explain the difference between digital citizenship and digital leadership, (b) provide examples of how students are becoming digital leaders by using the Internet and social media to improve the lives, well-being, and circumstances of others, and (c) show what family and consumer sciences (FCS) educators can do to move students from digital citizenship to digital leadership using the "Say Yes to FCS" campaign.
