Our High School Digital Citizenship Program, coined “#DigitalDivide” by past students, was created to keep you and your students better informed about the impact of technologies, such as smartphones and social networking, on high school students. We recognize that high school is a challenging time with rigorous coursework and schedules, complex social and emotional experiences and unprecedented technology related issues leading to decline in academic performance and appropriate communication skills, loss of focus and increased mental health needs.
The High School Digital Citizenship Program will provide weekly webinars that address breaking news and topics, app reviews, practical suggestions on protecting your digital reputation and invite students to share their opinion and voices on the challenges presented in the digital world. Our goal is to create leaders in this space by encouraging students to discuss current events, policies, and other realities that are impacting them through technology.
Streamed through our online platform, The High School Digital Citizenship Program includes a weekly webinar, a feedback form to either agree or disagree with the media’s representation of the topic discussed, a response form to share whether this is an area of focus they are interested in learning more about, and finally an option to provide suggestions for future topics.

- Technology Addiction
