Digital Literacy

We can’t talk about the issues at stake in this or any election if we’re not starting with a shared understanding of the facts. And that means teaching digital literacy. Teaching Tolerance’s digital literacy resources include ready-to-use lessons, student-facing videos, and professional development for educators. Our podcast The Mind Online explores the critical aspects of digital literacy that shape how we create and consume content online.
