About Digital Respons-Ability
Who We Are
What We Do
Digital Respons-Ability is a mission-based company researching and working in the area of digital citizenship. Digital Respons-Ability believes in a prevention science approach to preventing unhealthy online behavior that involves the individual, family and community. We work to educate and empower students, educators and parents.
Our student classes and summer camps are a deep dive into digital citizenship that teach students how to communicate online, regulate their emotions, understand digital law and help students become better people online. Our teen programs include eight classes and each student goes home with a booklet to support their learning. Our elementary program includes six classes with a focus on self-regulation and online safety.
We also teach educators on how to teach digital citizenship in partnership with Utah Valley University. Our training provides professional development and continuing education units (CEUs) and can benefit anyone who works with youth and technology. Included in the professional development are topics such as online privacy, prevention science, pedagogy, tech trends, knowledge assessments, online communication and more.
We educate and train parents on how to parent around technology through group classes and one-on-one consulting.
Digital Respons-Ability believes strongly in a research-based prevention science approach to technology and human behavior. Data collected from participants in our workshops find that students feel safer and more interested in STEM careers. We have published in the International Society for Technology in Education with more articles forthcoming.
Digital citizenship is a new and growing issue and we are proud to be leading out with our work that was published with Rowman and Littlefield in Fall 2019.
