What is digital literacy?

Digital Literacy is “a wide variety of ethical, social, and reflective practices that are embedded in work, learning, leisure, and daily life.” It encompasses digital citizenship, information literacy, and media literacy.  Let us show you how! This course includes lessons on:

Screen Time

Screen Time

Research shows that over 50% of students think they spend too much time online! A digitally-literate students understands that how they spend their time online is just as important as how much time they spend online.  Are they producing content or mindlessly consuming it?  Are they building healthy relationships online with their peers or comparing themselves to others?  These are things students consider with the help of engaging Cyber Civics lesson plans created by teachers for teachers.      

Critical Thinking

Critical Thinking

Teaching students how to critically evaluate the information they find online is one of the most important digital literacy tasks. Researchers from the Stanford Graduate School of Education discovered that young people’s ability to effectively evaluate the information they find online is, in a word, “bleak.” More than 80 percent of middle-school students were unable to distinguish a paid story branded as “sponsored content” from a real news story. Our lessons can change this!



An education in digital literacy should equip youth with the skills to deal with cyberbullying, digital drama, hate speech, and more. Research conducted by the Cyberbullying Research Center shows that, on average, about 28% of students say they have been the victim of cyberbullying at some point in their lives. Even more will observe others being cyberbullied. A good digital citizen knows how to be an upstander to cyberbullying and what to do if they are ever the target of a bully.

Reputation and Relationships


Maintaining a positive online reputation is a vital skill today. Everything they post online (and everything others post about them) can be seen by anyone and everyone, forever. Students should also know how to maintain positive relationships via all the ways they connect-- texting, social media apps, or when playing online games. They should understand how to communicate appropriately and respectfully online too. This course can help you teach your students all of these skills! 

What you'll learn:

  • What it means to be a competent, capable, and responsible digital citizen and why off-screen life lessons that build character matter most. 

  • How to maintain a positive and authentic digital reputation and why it’s so important. 

  • How to equip students with the skills to deal with cyberbullying, whether they are the target or observer, as well as how to be an “upstander.” 

  • How to maintain positive online relationships as well as how to protect your personal information. 

  • Ways to implement tried and true lesson plans that prepare students to be ethical, safe, and productive digital citizens.
