Digital Literacy, Citizenship and Safety

In a 21st century environment, becoming digitally literate is essential for students to be able to successfully and safely navigate the online community. 

What is Digital Literacy?

"Digital literacy is the ability to use information and communication technologies to find, evaluate, create, and communicate information, requiring both cognitive and technical skills" (American Literacy Association)

Internet Safety:  Be Smart ... Stay Safe!

"Knowledge is Power" and that certainly is the case when you are dealing with all types of internet safety topics.   

As educators and parents, we need to teach kids strategies to make good choices to stay safe. I developed this website to be a warehouse of resources for you  to find information, videos, presentations and information for kids, parents and educators.

Many parents want to know what filters they can put on their computer, how to block sites or how to check search history.  As technologies develop and the internet grows, I believe we need to help children understand the potential dangers and what actions to take to keep themselves safe.
