Just as you wouldn't throw a child into a pool without swimming lessons, we should think twice about putting a powerful digital device in the hands of a young child without some basic training too!

About the innovation

Helping Kids Build a Healthy Relationship with Technology

What we do?

We help kids, teachers, and families learn essential "digital literacy" skills so that they will know how to use tech mindfully and safely. Our comprehensive in-school curriculum, Cyber Civics,  is supported by Cyberwise, a resource site for parents. We want entire communities to understand how to achieve digital wellbeing.

Why we do it?

We are passionate about the opportunities and possibilities afforded by technology, but realistic about the downsides of tech use when children are not taught how to use it safely, wisely, and most importantly, in balance with all of the other wonderful things that life has to offer.
