WGBH and the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University are excited to share the release of The Internet and You: Curricular Materials for Educators Grades 1-3, developed by the Youth and Media team in collaboration with the New York Public Library and WGBH.
Featuring Ruff Ruffman: Humble Media Genius from PBS, “The Internet and You” provides interactive lesson plans about digital privacy, search engines, online advertising, and the creation of positive online experiences that can be used in schools, after-school programs, and beyond.
This free resource for educators, which includes worksheets kids can do at home with their parents or other caregivers, is now available on our Digital Literacy Resource Platform (DLRP), thanks to generous support from the Digital Media and Learning (DML) Trust Challenge grant.
“Young learners today are surrounded by digital technologies, but often they haven’t had the guidance in basic best practices that can help keep their online experiences positive,” said Berkman Klein Fellow and “The Internet and You” author Leah Plunkett. “Our new materials aim to support educators with the right tools to empower students to better navigate the digital space.”
These new curricular materials for elementary school age youth are part of an ever-growing set of educational resources for a diverse audience of youth (elementary, middle, and high school age), teachers, parents, and school administrators. Hosted on the DLRP, these resources provide guidance on online privacy, safety, information quality, and creative expression, and can be used both in school and out-of-school contexts.
Design Squad Global’s site has a new addition. Design Remix, is a drawing feature that encourages kids to collaborate on designs to create something new or different.
Congrats to Melissa and her team: on development, Kal and Alex; Tara and Stefan on design; Bill, Louise, and Elizabeth for production support, and our project leader, Marisa.
