My Digital Rights

Between 28 January and 30 April 2015, the British Library will be inviting secondary schools to take part in Magna Carta: My Digital Rights. Bridging the 25th anniversary of the World Wide Web and the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta, we will be encouraging young people to debate the issues of rights and responsibilities in the digital space.

Students will author their own individual clause, which will become part of a new Magna Carta for the digital age and be displayed on our website for the world to see.

This national schools programme will enrich the Citizenship and Computing curricula and provide opportunities for young people to consider their role in an increasingly connected world.

Register your interest today by emailing MagnaCartaSchools@bl.uk

Magna Carta TeachMeet

Come and discuss ways of teaching Magna Carta as part of the 800th anniversary celebrations. Sign up here and remember to let us know if you want to share your ideas in a two minute presentation.

This is a partnership event between The Association for Citizenship Teaching and the British Library. The afternoon is a networking opportunity to address different ways to bring Magna Carta into the classroom in 2015, including the British Library’s Magna Carta: My Digital Rights – a new free learning resource that encourages students to debate digital rights and responsibilities.
