As our world moves more online, students are faced with learning to balance their online and offline lives while preparing for a technology-driven future. Students spend an average of 8.5 hours using technology every day, so it’s important to prepare them to be Digital Citizens who can navigate the online world safely and appropriately in both their academic and personal lives. In this session, teachers will be given free access to Ignition, a brand-new online course from EVERFI that teaches students about digital wellness. Ignition helps students acknowledge the benefits of digital communities and resources while guiding them to successfully navigate potential pitfalls in their digital lives. Teachers who attend will gain full access to the online course, supplemental offline resources, and ongoing technical and curricular support, all at no cost. Best fit for grades 6-9.
