Overview:

Ignition: Digital Wellness and Safety is a digital literacy curriculum designed to provide students with the information literacy skills they need to safely and confidently navigate the digital world.  

These six digital responsibility lessons encourage students to take practical steps to protect their own privacy and safety online, while also teaching them how to evaluate content for accuracy, perspective, and motive. Ignition helps students acknowledge the benefits of digital communities and resources while guiding them to successfully navigate potential pitfalls in their digital lives.
