Why I focus on #DigitalLeadership Instead of Cyberbullying

    When we constantly talk to kids about cyberbullying, what ideas are we putting into their heads? We have a constant focus on “here is what you can’t do”” as opposed to here is what you can do?
    For years, I have been writing about the concept of Digital Leadership, and shared this definition in 2013:
    Using the vast reach of technology (especially the use of social media) to improve the lives, well-being, and circumstances of others.
    This little video reminds us how small actions can not only improve the lives of others, but they can easily spread.  That influence on others is a powerful trait of leadership, and something we should focus on when talking to our students.  It is not about what we can’t do, but more importantly, what we can. This belief in ourselves and our students can make all of the difference.
