2 © 2007 Media Awareness Network © MediaSmarts 2015 Vision To ensure children and youth have the critical thinking skills to engage with media as active and informed digital citizens.

3 © 2007 Media Awareness Network © MediaSmarts 2015 Approximately 12,000 students in grades 4-11 Funded by Government of Canada Phase I – 2000/2001 Phase II – 2004/2005 Phase III – 2011/2013 Young Canadians Research (YCWW)

4 © 2007 Media Awareness Network © MediaSmarts 2015 We need to change our focus from protecting kids… … to empowering them through digital literacy and digital citizenship skills.

5 © 2007 Media Awareness Network © MediaSmarts 2015 Scare tactics All the time, every year they have this big meeting … 'You don't know what this means! You could make people commit suicide!' And they have these people 'I used to be cyberbullied, it was so sad,' … Every year it's the same presentation … It's just annoying... (11-12, Calgary) Young Canadians in a Wired World, Phase III: Talking to Youth and Parents About Life Online What’s wrong with safety?

6 © 2007 Media Awareness Network © MediaSmarts 2015 Surveillance ….in a classroom there’s a lot of trust that would be broken if the students were knowingly recording the conversations of their peers and posting them online. Young Canadians in a Wired World, Phase III: Teachers’ Perspectives What’s wrong with safety?

7 © 2007 Media Awareness Network © MediaSmarts 2015 Online filters vs. letting students make mistakes “… it even took me a few minutes before I realized I was on a website that was sympathetic to the Nazis. It was phenomenally written, in evil ways. It cloaked the true racist and hatred messages under prose.” What’s wrong with safety?

8 © 2007 Media Awareness Network © MediaSmarts 2015 Percentage Yes Have you ever had trouble finding something you needed for school work on a school computer because it was blocked? 36% Can you access sites at your school even if your school has blocked them? 25% What’s wrong with safety?

9 © 2007 Media Awareness Network © MediaSmarts 2015 What do we mean by digital literacy?

10 © 2007 Media Awareness Network © MediaSmarts 2015 Holistic digital literacy education

11 Ethics and Empathy Privacy and Security Community Engagement Digital Health Consumer Awareness Finding and Verifying Cyberbullying; sharing other people’s content; SEL skills; empathy Sharing your own content; data privacy; cybersecurity; digital footprint Influencing positive social norms; understanding your rights; understanding channels for engagement and activism Life balance; managing screen time; handling identity and sexuality, mental health, body image issues; recognizing and maintaining healthy relationships Recognizing and decoding advertising; understanding Terms of Service and Privacy Policies; knowing means of redress Search and authentication skills

12 What do we mean by digital citizenship?

13 It’s not like all of a sudden you hit 18, and now you can have autonomy. Students do not learn to make good choices by being told what to do and follow instructions… they have to be given the opportunity to make bad choices as often as good choices. And they need adults to be the saving, caring allies that we need to be to help them make [good choices], to learn from their mistakes. What do we mean by digital citizenship?
