THE PHILOSOPHY

This is a great place to add a tagline.

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 lift them to new heights.

SHIFTING NEEDS

When the Industrial Revolution disrupted the 19th century, schools mandated Physical Education to promote student health in a world no longer entrenched in an agrarian setting. In today’s tech-saturated environment, young people require a robust Internet Ethics curriculum to grow into empowered users, creators and collaborators. Without Internet Ethics, educators are tacitly expecting all students to emerge from schools possessing critical understandings of a hyperconnected world... on their own. Would we do this with math or music or reading? Why should we with this? We believe that young people will achieve their fullest potential as a result of positive, focused interactions with knowledgeable, inspiring and forward-thinking educators who have their fingers on the pulse of where kids are, in order to help bring them along to where we know they need to be. 

DISCUSSION-BASED CONTENT

This curriculum is designed as a lightweight, easily adaptable, thought-provoking framework, allowing educators to instantly provoke deep exploration, debate and authentic, inquiry-based connections without the traditional barriers that often render educational programs too dense, quickly dated or outmoded. 

 

AUTHENTIC ASKS AND TASKS

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 behind what they have learned.

BEYOND DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP

The Internet Ethics curriculum was designed with an awareness that while young people are digital natives, many are also digitally naive. Therefore, navigating an online world goes way beyond mere digital citizenship. IE creates opportunities for students to develop invaluable skills, preparing them to thrive in a hyperconnected, ever-changing environment.

IE is the pathway to                 digital dharma.
