“In the U.S. and especially in California, our students must have the knowledge and tools they need to make responsible online decisions,” said Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom. “But their knowledge has to go beyond just being safe; we need to prepare them to succeed in the knowledge economy, to fill countless California jobs in science, technology and engineering. My Digital Life has the potential to give them that knowledge.”The My Digital Life program is an interactive, new media learning platform that combines the power of cutting-edge instructional design, rich media, and gaming. The 3.5-hour curriculum is designed for students in 8 th and 9 th grade and aligns with national standards established by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), as well as state standards. The program covers a wide range of topics including privacy, security, cyberbullying, digital relationships, and digital addiction. The curriculum also focuses on building digital skills, such as creating a blog, maintaining a responsible social networking profile, and evaluating online research sources for legitimacy. By helping students understand the power of technology, the program also exposes them to possible career opportunities in the field. The learning platform tracks knowledge gain as well as students’ attitudes and behaviors on these important issues.
