WHY INTERNET ETHICS?

When it comes to teaching young people about the power of the technology they hold in their hands, we can do better. We must do better. The Internet Ethics Curriculum is your students’ pathway to digital dharma.

We believe that young people will achieve their fullest potential through positive, focused interactions with knowledgeable, inspirational and forward-thinking educators who meet kids where kids are, and inspire them to reach new heights.

IE is the pathway to             digital dharma.

SHIFTING NEEDS

When the Industrial Revolution disrupted the 19th century, the Round Hill School, in Massachusetts, mandated PE. It took 138 years for that movement to go from the schoolhouse to the White House. 

 

We don’t have that kind of time. 

 

Students need IE now for the same reasons they needed PE back then: Teaching content isn’t enough. 

 

Building skills and a robust tech mindset will empower young people to be successful creators, thinkers and collaborators. 

 

If schools don’t rise to this challenge, who will?

DON'T GIVE KIDS GAME-CHANGING TECHNOLOGY
IF YOU'RE NOT WILLING TO
CHANGE THE GAME.

This curriculum features the application of real 21st-century skills with a focus on meaningful discussion and deeper learning.

AUTHENTIC ASKS AND TASKS:

THE LESSON FRAMEWORK

Each lesson is constructed upon the four cornerstones of 21st-century learning: motivation, engagement, creativity and innovation. Educators are provided with a compelling, open-ended Aim question, followed by captivating Motivational activities, ideas for Exploration, and hands-on/“brains-on” Applications, which promote synthesis as students have a wealth of opportunities to demonstrate understanding and derive meaning from what they have learned.

Digital natives are often digitally naïve. The IE curriculum increases students’ empathy, tolerance and global awareness, while decreasing the decision-making that breeds bullying.

 

Our activities challenge students to leave your school a better place than they found it.

THE LEARNING SCIENCE BEHIND INTERNET ETHICS

While IE is inspired by myriad studies, at its core it is driven by five theoretical frames:

  1. Csikszentmihalyi’s “Flow Theory”

  2. Vygotsky’s “Zone of Proximal Development”

  3. Eccles’s “Expectancy-Value Theory”

  4. Vélez-Ibáñez & Greenberg’s “Funds of Knowledge”

  5. Pandya’s “Critical Digital Literacies”

NO SCOPE.

NO SEQUENCE.

NO WORKSHEETS.

NO QUIZZES.
