Digital Respons-Ability is committed to educating and informing individuals to become empowered digital citizens. We provide education, support programs, and customized services for our professional partners. Through this work we are creating a vision for our community, one that emphasizes knowledge, curiosity, confidence, and competency.
We wish for all parents to understand that to truly become a digital parent, you need to understand the whys of your child’s behavior, the cause and not the symptom. We blame the technology too much. Blaming the phone is like saying that people who have pneumonia use penicillin too much because you see them using penicillin a lot. You cannot see the virus replicating in their body. Similarly, we cannot know what is in someone’s mind when they make a decision online.
We came up with the 3M’s™ – Model, Monitor, and Manage – to help parents create family media plans that work for all ages. Learn more HERE.
Our hands-on approach to teaching digital citizenship is making a huge difference in our communities. Hear more about it:
“My students loved your presentation and thought you were great! We hope you will return again to our school for more presentations!” – Elisha
“Our hospital recently invited Carrie Rogers-Whitehead from Ditigal Respons-Ability to train our staff. Her presentation directly addressed needs in our community, and she was able to seamlessly adapt her presentation based on our interests and questions. Her engaging and dynamic presenting style made participants feel welcome to ask questions. We would love to have her return to teach us more about this crucial topic.”
– Michael Cox, Adolescent Therapist, UNI at the University of Utah.
“The digital world is becoming more complex and the stakes are getting higher by the day. Having [Digital Respons-Ability] work with teachers and students is a great way to stay up to date and work through the challenges.
Keeping up to date with technology is difficult, and understanding the impacts can be even more challenging. [Digital Respons-Ability] is a great resource for schools, teachers, students, and parents to gain actionable insights into the fast moving online world.“
-Robert Warren, American Academy of Innovation
