You’ll learn how to make sure your personal information stays private, while our topics on Digital Etiquette and Cyberbullying will show you why it’s important to treat others the way you’d want to be treated—even in cyberspace!

Today we communicate through a powerful combination of words, images and sounds. Therefore, being media literate requires a new set of skills that allow us not only to comprehend, but also to create and distribute information across all mediums.

At CyberWise we believe that the first step to media literacy is Digital Citizenship. Just like Driver's Education prepares young people to get behind the wheel of a car, Digital Citizenship prepares them to navigate the Information Superhighway safely and confidently.

Our goal is to help you prepare young people to become wise users of the powerful technologies that are transforming education. Visit our CyberTools4Schools Store to download resources to get you started!
