WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
These lessons come from Cyber Civics: Level 1 which is packed with peer-to-peer learning activities that call on critical thinking, ethical discussion and decision making through hands-on projects, problem solving activities, and role-play, all surrounding the topic of "digital citizenship" (the norms of appropriate and responsible technology use). Currently taught in all types of schools, after-school programs, and by home-schoolers across 45 US states and internationally, it has received national media attention, been honored as an "Innovation in Education" award finalist by Project Tomorrow and the O.C. Tech Alliance, and its founder, Diana Graber, is the recipient of the "2017 Media Literacy Teacher Award" from the National Association of Media Literacy Education (NAMLE). Her book—"Raising Humans in a Digital World: Helping Kids Build a Healthy Relationship with Technology" (HarperCollins Leadership) tells the Cyber Civics story.
The program can be taught in-school or is easily delivered at-home in the event of Distance Learning.

“Since the 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, Administrator at the Founding School

"Cyber Civics lays a strong foundation for healthy digital ethics, information and computer literacy so when children face inevitable, difficult choices online, they will make the right decisions."
-Dr. Paul Helfrich, Teacher, Westside Waldorf School, L.A., CA
"The thoughtfulness and breadth of the program is an asset to our school, and the parents are very happy to have "tech-driver's-ed" in our curriculum."
-Soni Albright, City of Lakes Waldorf School
"We know that digital-citizenship education works. The Journey School in Aliso Viejo, a small Southern California city, is an example of a digital-citizenship success story. Since instituting a three-year middle school series on digital citizenship, information literacy on evaluation of online sources, and media-literacy courses to teach critical-thinking skills around media texts of all kinds—music videos, film, print advertising—the school has nearly eliminated bullying and behavioral issues and significantly boosted standardized-test scores."
-Education Week, July 2016
Cyber Civics is the best digital media literacy curriculum I've seen yet as it is developmentally based and creative."
-Sheila Reilly, Administrator, Woodland Star Charter School
"Since cyber-life is imperative to a child's future, isn't it about time to demand that schools implement Cyber Civics classes?"
-Online Safety Expert Sue Scheff, in "Digital Citizenship Is a Important as Potty Training: Let's Start Cyber Civics In All Schools"
“If a Cyber Civics or digital literacy class is offered in your school or community, sign the kids up."
