Digital citizenship is the continuous development of the skills on appropriate, responsible, and empowered use of technology. These skills include helping people to:
Stay safe, build resilience, and discern fact from fiction.
Lead with empathy, communicate across diverse cultures, and respect other perspectives.
Think critically about how they can contribute to society and work together to make positive progress, online and off.
Build healthy relationships and find greater wellbeing.
We all play a part in creating responsible digital citizens and building a brighter future.
Our learning modules are aimed at empowering people to think critically about their digital behavior. The We Think Digital program is designed to be delivered as either a full curriculum or as standalone lessons in both high-tech or low-tech environments. The lessons are scripted and provide guidance on how you can prepare for and deliver them in formal and informal settings. They are also open-ended so that you can modify them to fit the needs of your learners.

Interactive learning encourages active learning. We know that learning through interactive experiences greatly increases the rate of retention and the pace of learning among participants. To augment the We Think Digital program, we’ve developed interactive content that is suited for learners across all age groups to keep participants actively engaged in the learning process.
