“Since Cyber Civics™ classes started at our school, there have been only three reported incidences of poor digital behavior; none in the last two years. This is unheard of in this day and age. What has been a small investment has paid off tenfold. Plus it allows us to put our energy on what matters most, learning and teaching in a happy, safe, and healthy community.”
- Shaheer Faltas, Journey School Administrator
"Teaching Cyber Civics to my 6th graders is the favorite part of my week. The program is so easy to use and teach."
- Karina Salveen, Novato Charter School Teacher
"I really, really, really suggest looking at these lesson plans. I found
them to be excellent and easily implemented. My students enjoyed the
lessons and they led to interesting class discussions."
-Michele Conyers, Stone Bridge School Teacher
"After seeing Cyber Civics I am happy to endorse it on behalf of Charters OC as a solution to helping young people learn how to use digital media competently and thoughtfully. Lessons on topics such as digital citizenship, information literacy, and media literacy are needed now more than ever. Students need these skills to prepare them for college, the workforce, and life in general.
-Susan Mas, Executive Director, Charters OC
“Over the course of three years working with Diana Graber and watching her develop the curriculum, I recognize that it is based on the the same cognitive developmental skills that are foundational to Waldorf teaching in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. While this curriculum has found a rich home in Waldorf schools that foster ethical development, it is a curriculum that can fit in all educational settings.”
- Bonnie River, Chair of Hybrid Program Waldorf Teacher Training, Rudolf Steiner College
Cyber Civics is the best digital media literacy curriculum I've seen yet as it is developmentally based and creative. The lessons are thoughtful, interactive and encourage kids to connect and collaborate about the very thing that has the potential of disconnecting them-- technology! As an Administrator I wanted a curriculum that was thorough, timely and reflected the true realities that kids may encounter online. The curriculum needed to be simple to use and ready to launch with a price that wouldn't break our budget. I also wanted a resource for parents and a place to access new apps and ask questions as they arose. Cyber Civics has provided all of the above. I highly recommend this curriculum and commend Diana and her team for the creation of such a comprehensive and relevant curriculum.
-Sheila Reilly, Administrator, Woodland Star Charter School
"After completing three years of Cyber Civics lessons in school I can see the impact it has made on my child. Not only is he thoughtful and careful about what he posts online, but also counsels his friends on their media practices! I can't image parenting a high school student who has not had these classes.
