Helping kids traverse the virtual world can be tough for teachers, parents and other care givers because we were never 15 and on Facebook! The rules are changing and part of it is related to the technology – while a bigger part related to time management and understanding social cues. Learning ZoneXpress has produced a new DVD (My Digital Life DVD) to help educators and students work with through digital literacy issues. The new video is a follow up to our other popular cyber safety series: 7 Ways to Block and Cyberbully DVD and Staying Safe Online Activity Pack. While the earlier videos focused on safety, our latest DVD really addresses the need to manage productivity online by using technology as a tool.
In the video, technology education experts and adolescents offer powerful strategies to effectively navigate a rapidly growing and ever-changing digital world.
This thought-provoking video addresses issues of privacy and the digital footprint; misguided notions about multitasking and learning; as well as the value of being wired vs. unplugged. Are we really more connected or are we losing interpersonal skills? Is this technology robbing us of our sleep, our free time? Is it controlling our lives? And, what should we be telling our children, ourselves?
