Facebook has just rolled out a new update to its ‘Get Digital’ online education resource hub, which provides a range of guides to help parents and students safely navigate online connection.

“Get Digital, our digital citizenship and well-being program first launched in March 2020, includes research-based lessons and resources that help young people develop the skills they need to become empowered digital citizens. Get Digital provides educators, parents, and care-givers lesson plans and activities organized around five pillars — Foundations, Wellness, Engagement, Empowerment and Opportunities– to help build the core competencies and skills young people need to navigate the digital world in safe ways.

We are excited to announce that we have expanded the content for the back-to-school season based on parent and teacher feedback to further support facilitation in the classroom, after school, and at home.

Professional Development: Five individual professional development guides to be used by teacher leaders to train educators on how to use these materials in the classroom.

After School Guide: A facilitator’s guide designed for after school programming to support the usage of Get Digital in an after-school setting and among youth-serving organizations.

Media Literacy Lessons: New media literacy lessons on reverse image search and metadata for our Get Digital Engagement pillar. These were drawn from the Harvard Berkman Klein Center for Youth and Media.”

Facebook’s ‘Get Digital’ platform aims to improve digital literacy and keep users safe while logging into their lessons online. Facebook’s Child Safety Hub will be available in 55 languages.
