The middle school years are challenging enough for students, parents and educators. Add in the complexities of the internet, discerning what is real and fake information, cyberbullying, digital footprints, and the impact it has on our lives, can make it seem overwhelming. At Waldorf School at Moraine Farm, middle schoolers are taught how to be ethical, knowledgeable and empowered digital citizens who have digital literacy skills that allow them to critically evaluate and contribute to media in a positive way.
During the Middle School Cyber Night on Tuesday, May 1, middle school teachers and educators will highlight the three year (6-8 grade) Cyber Civics program. The audience will engage in mini Cyber Civics lessons in Digital Citizenship, Information Literacy and Constructive Media Participation. Participants will gain new skills and tools to help pre-teens and teens navigate and prepare for their digital future.
This is a free event, open to the public, held at Waldorf School at Moraine Farm in Beverly, MA. From 7 to 9:30 pm. For ages 9 and up.
