2.5 Media Awareness is renewed and will continue without interuption of service. New component added for the High School.
  • MyWorld- helps teens develop the critical thinking skills they need to apply to their online experiences by enabling them to use popular online tools and Web sites in a secure and ethical manner. In each of the four chapters in MyWorld, students use a variety of tools such as a search engine, a social networking site and an instant messaging program, to complete tasks that challenge their digital literacy skills. For example, a typical task might be delivered by "Instant Mail" and require a video chat with one of the student's mentors on "Live Speak" before calling upon the student to use "Googolplex" to research a topic and then inform her peers on the topic through a post on "SpaceFace". This approach is similar to how multi-tasking teens use the Net.
