Our Digital Driver's Ed Helps Families:
Driving Safely on Social Media
Students and parents learn how to spot good and bad apps and how others can hurt you online (even if you're staying in your own lane)
Connecting with Friends In a Positive Way
We show students how to be happy online. Our mental health content shows them how to balance the positive side social media and how to look out for bullying, screen time addiction, and more.
Using Google To See Your Online Brand
Even if a student isn't online, we show them how other people (who might look like them) are damaging their online brand. This opens a dialog about social media behaviors.
Mapping Out Your Reputation by Building a Private Portfolio
We teach students how to plan their route and turn their activities into an online portfolio so they know what they are good at (and make wise decisions)
Getting The Car On The Road And Building Your Public Footprint
We teach students how to turn all of their social media accounts (and private portfolio) into a positive high-school resume to get noticed by colleges and future employers.
