Today's kids are impressively tech-savvy! They are so comfortable with all the new technologies that are around today and are not afraid to show their skills to their parents. But the digital world -- just like the nondigital world -- requires all kinds of skills that kids don't simply pick up as they go. Digital citizenship and media literacy have to be taught.

Being a good digital citizen is more than knowing your way around the Internet. In the P.S. 188 Technology Lab, we will create a positive school culture that supports safe and responsible technology use. Students in K-5 will complete fun and engaging lessons in a Digital Citizenship Program that addresses real life challenges to help them navigate cyberbullying, internet safety, and other digital dilemmas.


Your child will be able to successfully address these digital concerns:

  • How do I tell the difference between trustworthy and false information on the web?
  • When is it OK to use someone else's work in my creative projects?
  • How do I keep my personal information private online?
  • How can I create strong powerful passwords?
  • What should I do if I am bullied online?
  • What should I do if I see someone else being bullied online?
  • What are some safe websites for me?
  • How can I search for information effectively?
