Digital Literacy

Teaching Digital Natives

Students aren’t born with digital literacy skills. They may be able to play video games and use cell phones, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they understand basic uses, best practices, and safety risks when it comes to technology. So, what is digital literacy? It’s the ability to understand, use and safely interact with technology, media and digital resources in real-world situations.

Give your students the opportunity to excel in our digital world by equipping them with these critical skills – starting as early as kindergarten.

Keyboarding

Understanding how to effectively use word processing in real-life situations and master touch-typing are necessary skills for career development and success in school.

Online Safety

Equip students with the online safety skills they need to combat cyberbullying, and to determine what information is credible on the internet to make ethical and informed decisions.

Business Apps

Prepare your students for the demands of high school, college, and the workforce by introducing them to applications including spreadsheets, presentations and databases.

Coding

Every student should have the opportunity to learn about algorithms, how to make apps, or how the internet works. Arm your students with the skills needed to succeed in the new digital economy.

"We need to understand that this generation of students is immersed in a digital world. If we’re not teaching them digital responsibility, then what are we doing for them? Students need to learn that there is a whole bunch of responsibility that comes with technology. It’s about more than testing."
