Mar 10, 2024

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

Video games and social media have been at the center of debates about mental health and many social issues, but not all digital experiences are created equal. We'll talk about how we can create a healthier internet by developing good citizens through digital interactions, as well as some of the frameworks that designers can use to build online spaces that foster good citizenship among users of all ages.
