Program to Prepare Thoughtful, Ethical Digital Citizens
Born in a Waldorf-inspired public charter school classroom in California, Cyber Civics meets a growing need to prepare middle school students to be ethical, safe, and wise digital citizens. The in-class program has three levels—Level 1: Digital Citizenship; Level 2:Information Literacy; and Level 3: Media Literacy for Positive Participation. Subscribers to Cyber Civics receive a private link that provides access to an online portal full of in-classroom lessons, videos, resources, plus support. Every level has enough 50-minute lessons/activities for an entire school year (if taught weekly). Teachers can sign up online for a free lesson. The initial subscription fee for each level of the program depends on the size of the school. Scholarships are available for schools that cannot afford the cost.
On June 8, from 10:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. (ET), children can join educators from the National Gallery of Art and the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art for an enjoyable hands-on Art Tales Live: Online Storytime program.
