The innovation and evolution of digital technologies has created a new way of teaching, learning, socializing, and communicating. The adoption of new digital technology is so rapid that a uniform and proactive concept of responsible use is often overlooked. With these constant changes, the irresponsible, and often dangerous and malicious use of these digital devices can lead to negative, life-altering consequences. The Institute for Responsible Online and Cell Phone Communication's (IROC) founder Richard Guerry's approach is solution oriented and preventive. In the digital world your actions are "public and permanent."
Working with IROC, Mazzarella Media has produced a series of programs that provides digital users, young and old, with the information they need to make good digital decisions. Awareness greatly reduces the risk of becoming a victim of a cyber-crime or digital exploitation.
There are separate age-appropriate programs and guides for grades 3-5, 6-8 and 9-college. Each program is divided into several 7-10 minute chapters. This Program also aims to inform students in the importance of being aware of their digital behaviors. In addition, it provides tools, tips, and comprehensive curriculum to increase everyone's digital awareness and consciousness.
