Online Privacy & Security Curriculum

Digital Citizenship / Digital Litteracy Education for grades K to 12

As parents were caught off guard by the rise of online media, teaching young people of all ages in school to be safe and private when they’re online is crucial, not only for healthy social interactions, but also for their mental well-being and their safety. This is a necesary move to expand on what is called digital litteracy education in Canadian schools. “Dig Lit” focuses heavily on “media litteracy”, distinguishing real from fake news.

Common Sense Media, a San Francisco-based non profit, has developped a rich Digital Citizenship ( “ DigCit”) curriculum with Harvard that addresses one’s ereputation in both its good and bad aspects, with interactive, multimedia-rich lessons. Its a great resource for Canadian and US schools as part of job readiness, social studies, health and well-being or technology classes.
