In Digital Literacy, students explore what it means to be a digital citizen, expand their understanding of how digital networks and computers operate, and practice using digital tools to learn and create. The class is designed to help students become capable and thoughtful users of technology. Students will find out how long it takes a web packet to travel from Los Angeles to London, make a plan for combatting cyberbullying, and learn how to spot an online scam. They’ll discuss subjects such as what information should be kept private and explore some of the ways online companies use data you give them. Once a week, students will spend the class creating with technology: building websites, editing images, creating 3-D models, coding games, animating movies, and more.
