Activities for Elementary School (Ages 5–11)

Add a daily dose of digital citizenship to your week with the Digital Citizens (they’re a band!). These fun characters help young students learn about healthy media habits. And the videos for older elementary students will get them talking about how to recognize cyberbullying, how to find credible news and information, and more.

Activities for Middle School (Ages 11–14)

Our Teen Voices video series will help middle school students reflect on their tech use and make thoughtful, informed choices. They’ll also discuss the benefits and drawbacks of social media, how to deal with digital drama, and ways to keep online friendships safe.

Activities for High School (Ages 14–18)

With these videos and discussion questions, high schoolers can reflect on their social media use and think about how their actions online might affect others. Discussions include understanding online hate speech, how much screen time is too much, and ways to communicate with people who disagree with you.
