Digital Literacy

Self Image and Identity: These lessons are designed to help students explore their own digital lives, focusing on their online versus their offline identity. Students learn the benefits and risks of presenting themselves through different personas and the effects on their sense of self, their reputation, and their relationships
Digital Footprint & Reputation: Students learn to protect their own privacy and respect others' privacy.  Our digital world is permanent, and with each post, students are building a digital footprint.  By encouraging students to self-reflect before they self-reveal, they will consider how and what they share online can impact themselves and others.
