Preparing our youth to lead in the age of digital disruption!
TEACHING DIGITAL NATIVES
Teaching Digital Natives
Today, technology is a fixture in everyday life. From smart phones and tablets to computers and online devices, connectivity to cyberspace is far outpacing our ability to instill essential cybersecurity education. User education remains one of the most under-invested and under-appreciated aspects of cybersecurity. Proper cyber hygiene, for starters, is critical in protecting youth and disadvantaged communities from the cyber criminals that prey on users with limited knowledge and understanding of cybersecurity.
By educating youth and families and retooling underserved communities, we can mitigate the dangers of the online world, cultivate a strong technology workforce, and make the Internet a secure experience for everyone!
Founded in 2017, Teaching Digital Natives is a non-profit educational initiative that provides technology, cybersecurity and digital literacy for kids.
