In one of its first public statements since its launching, the Obama Foundation is issuing a call to examine the concept of digital citizenship.
Digital engagement and being a good digital citizen were focal point of the Obama Administration and it appears to be one of the early centers of interest for the former president in his private function as a global citizen.
Speaking earlier this year at the University of Chicago, the President touched on this theme, saying
[ We] now have a situation in which everybodys listening to people who already agree with them. People are using social media and the global reach of the Internet to reinforc[ e] their own realities, to the forget of a common reality that allows us to have a healthy debate and then try to find common ground and actually move answers forward, the former president said.
Now, his organization is issuing a call to start the conversation on how to improve our digital demeanors.
