Dear Facilitator,

Welcome to My Digital World, Meta's digital citizenship and wellbeing program. This was designed to support you and other educators as technology leads the way into our digital future.

Educators across the globe recognize the importance of teaching internet users the information, behaviors, and skills that help people thrive in an increasingly complex, connected digital world. Practicing digital citizenship and wellbeing can help keep people safe while empowering them to positively influence their environments.

My Digital World helps you introduce digital citizenship and wellbeing concepts to your learners through lessons drawn from several expert partners. The lessons are based on many years of academic research and reflect the diverse voices and experiences of people from around the world.

The My Digital World lessons are divided across six content pillars:

Introduction to Digital Learning: Demonstrating to students what the internet is, identifying information that can be shared over the internet, determining various methods for accessing information online, and identifying the benefits, roles, and responsibilities of digital citizenship.

Digital Foundations: Teaching students how to leverage tools to protect their digital devices and their personal information online, as well as that of others.

Digital Wellness: Supporting learners’ ability to engage with others (both individuals and the larger collective) online in empathic and positive ways, protect their physical and mental health, and explore their identities.

Digital Engagement: Helping learners develop executive functioning, critical thinking, and the skills needed to evaluate and share media and information online, as well as engage with different cultures and contexts.

Digital Empowerment: Helping learners use technology and social media to create positive change and better opportunities for themselves, their communities, and the world.

Digital Opportunities: Preparing learners to create the next wave of technology and succeed in their careers and pathways.

The lessons in each content pillar have been carefully curated to help participants learn tangible skills such as protecting personal information, identifying reputable sources, and recognizing healthy online relationships. In addition to the facilitator materials, My Digital World offers resources and activities that participants can use at home.

Thank you for helping internet users become empowered, competent, and responsible digital citizens. We’re grateful for the opportunity to work with you to improve access to digital citizenship and wellbeing resources for all through the My Digital World program.
