Cyber Civics™ is an easy-to-teach in-classroom program (also adaptable for Distance Learning) that meets a growing need to prepare students to be ethical, safe and productive digital citizens. There are three levels appropriate for middle school:
Teachers access curriculum via an online portal where lessons are constantly updated. Curriculum meets educational standards.
CYBER CIVICS CURRICULUM
What does Cyber Civics include? When your school or organization subscribes to Cyber Civics, you receive access to an easy-to-use online portal full of in-classroom lessons, videos, resources, plus support. Any teacher at your school can open a private account. Downloading and teaching these lessons is a breeze! Every level has enough :50 minute weekly lessons/activities to last an entire school year.
How much do I have to know about technology to teach Cyber Civics? Not much. Remember, the most important digital literacy skills are social and behavioral skills. These lessons can be taught entirely without tech by anyone smarter than a 5th grader. Your wisdom is what kids need most.
What does it cost? Initial subscription fee for each level of the program depends upon the size of your school. There is a very low annual renewal fee for each level; this enables us to refresh the lessons (in real time), add new materials, and provide on-going engagement and support. Scholarships are available for schools that cannot afford subscription cost.
Downloadable, easy-to-teach, in-classroom lesson plans and activities.
Support materials and videos.
Send-home letters for parents with suggested at-home activities that align with each lesson.
Monthly newsletter that keep teachers engaged and informed.
Professional development support (including complimentary "screen-share" tutorials for teachers).
Plus, we are always available for telephone support.
What if we don't have the time or resources to teach the full year program of weekly lessons?
Some schools select the units that work best for them and teach the lessons when they can (we can help you with this). Plus, there's Cyber Civics Mini for schools pressed for time.
What about parents? We're glad you asked! Cyber Civics includes ready-to-send-home letters with activities for families. Every activity aligns with a lesson taught in the classroom. We also offer Cyber Civics for Home School. Cyberwise (a.k.a., No Grownup Left Behind) is our free website for parents. And we encourage parents to read "Raising Humans in a Digital World: Helping Kids Build a Healthy Relationships with Technology" (HarperCollins Leadership), and to download the free discussion guide that accompanies the book.
Do you visit schools? Yes! We visit schools in-person and virtually to deliver engaging parent presentations and to give teacher workshops. Learn more here.
