The Digital Citizenship+ (Plus) Resource Platform (DCPR) is an evolving collection of learning experiences, visualizations, and other educational resources (collectively referred to as “tools”) designed and maintained by the Youth and Media team. You can use the DCRP to learn about different areas of youth’s digitally connected life, including:
(1) Artificial Intelligence (AI), (2) Civic and Political Engagement, (3) Computational Thinking, (4) Content Production, (5) Context, (6) Data, (7) Digital Access, (8) Digital Economy, (9) Digital (Literacy), (10) Identity Exploration and Formation, (11) Information Quality, (12) Law, (13) Media (Literacy), (14) Positive / Respectful Behavior, (15) Privacy and Reputation, (16) Safety and Well-being, and (17) Security.
Most tools on the DCRP have been co-designed and created by the Youth and Media team, together with youth. All tools on the platform are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International (CC BY-SA 4.0) license unless otherwise specified. You can make use of them, including copying and preparing derivative works, whether commercial or non-commercial, so long as you attribute Youth and Media as the original source and follow the other terms of the license, like sharing any further works under the same terms.
The tools have been designed with different audiences in mind.
Group Activities for Schools and Organizations with an Educational Mission
A large number of tools, resembling a school lesson in format, have been designed for schools and other formal learning spaces. A subset of these tools has been translated into over 35 languages, with more translated content to be added over time! If you are responsible for educating others, these tools can also support you as you teach or fill other valuable guidance roles. Learn more about ways our tools can be applied in the school context in our report Youth and Digital Citizenship+ (Plus): Understanding Skills for a Digital World on page 31.
Group Activities for Families
To support families, participants from the Digitally Connected network and the Network of Centers have come together to compile a collection of creative, fun, and educational activities related to the digital world that family members can engage in together.
Overall, the tools aim to empower people with knowledge about connected learning environments and other parts of the digital world and promote the co-creation of trustworthy and supportive digital spaces for all of us.
