Online Robust Vulnerability: Developing Digital Empathy & Humanity Without Disconnecting

Session 5
Bill Jennings, Krista Inchausti — Convent & Stuart Hall - Schools of the Sacred Heat, San Francisco

Students are increasingly embedded in online communities through games and social media. We have seen that unmoderated communities can lead to mob mentality, cruelty, unhealthy body image, racist attacks, threats of assault, hatred, antisemitism, homophobia, transphobia and misogyny. Rather than coming from a place of fear or simply urging that students unplug, we want to foster in students the skills to navigate these digital spaces from a place of empathy, humanity, and robust vulnerability.

Conversational Practice

We will engage in conversations and collect ideas, suggestions and responses through sticky notes and collaborative idea-generating processes.
