PCAU is partnering with Digital Respons-Ability to present Internet Safety for the whole child. Like our other curriculum, Digital Respons-ability works in small-group settings with an age-adaptive curriculum to educate students of all ages about technology and digital citizenship. Our program emphasizes knowledge, curiosity, confidence, and competency and creates empowered digital citizens. The curriculum encourages social emotional learning (SEL) skills which in turn produces positive digital behaviors. As they learn how to use the internet safely as a tool and community with this program, we have found that they discover how to create with the technology that they are using. Individual courses may be chosen from the menu options below. Or, for the most powerful impact, you may arrange a series of presentations for your classroom or small group. This curriculum has been endorsed by the Utah State Board of Education and the Internet Crimes Against Children division of the Utah State Attorney General's office. Contact us for more details.
