Students today are the first generation to grow up with text messaging in their pocket, and social media at their fingertips.
“8 to 18-year-olds spend an average of 7.5 hours in front of a screen each day.”
—The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation
“Some 13-year-olds admit to checking social media 100 times per day.”
We believe students need a guide to greet them at the front door of the internet and empower them with a clear set of values, principles, and social skills to guide their lives online. Our digital citizenship curriculum and live presentations provide mentorship and guidance for students to thrive in today’s digital world.

For nearly seven years, Dave and Blake have taught kids across North America why it’s so important to be safe, smart, and kind online, and shared a set of simple values and principles to live by in their digital lives.
In March of 2020, the world changed dramatically and the role that technology and social media play in our lives shifted.
In “My New Life Online”, Dave and Blake empower students to self-reflect and discover the way their relationship with social media has changed since the beginning of the pandemic. Students will leave the presentation with three powerful actions they can take immediately to “upgrade” the way they use technology and interact with others in their day-to-day life, both online and in person.
Of course, Dave and Blake will still leave students with the same values and principles they’ve shared for nearly seven years.
- Students will understand how technology and social media have shifted since the beginning of the pandemic.
- Through self-reflection, students will understand how their personal relationship with technology and social media has changed over the past 12-18 months.
- Students will walk away with three ways they can upgrade the way they view and use technology each and every day.
- They will know the questions to ask themselves before every single piece of communication they share online.
- Students will enhance their ability to think critically about everything they consume in the media and social media.
- Students will gain a deeper understanding of why this conversation is more relevant to them than ever before.
