Based a federally funded project on implementation of 1:1 computing in 28 schools, Digital Wish designed a technology curriculum to comprehensively cover the NETS standards. The number of students who know what being a good Digital Citizen means tripled from 31% to 96% after the Digital Citizenship course. Our turnkey curriculum pack, Digital Citizenship, guides students and teachers through internet safety, media resources, and media copyright. Digital Citizenship provides clear instruction on cyber safety with class instruction, video activities, and student projects. After this unit, students will be well-prepared to use technology in a safe, respectful, and responsible way.
