CyberSmart! fosters 21st century skills to increase student engagement and prepare students to achieve in today's digital society.
In this way we are very different—and substantially more effective—than organizations that only promote messages alerting educators, students, and parents to the dangers of the Internet. While we do directly address online safety and security issues, we do so with a clear focus on the educational objective—fostering 21st century skills to increase student engagement and prepare students to achieve in today's digital society.
CyberSmart! Online Workshops, facilitated professional development, give educators a hands-on experience in 21st century skills—the new basic skills—to meet the learning needs of today’s students. Educators engage in the same kinds of learning they are expected to facilitate in the classroom.
CyberSmart! Africa implements a highly scalable, practical solution designed to provide even the poorest schools in the world—including one quarter of the world's population living without electricity—with a 21st century education. Our low-cost "tech-lite" model puts learning first—emphasizing collaborative teacher training coupled with low-power innovative technology.
