In 2016 I left my job as a librarian to start Digital Respons-Ability. I loved being a librarian, but I saw gaps in digital citizenship education that needed to be filled. I wanted to serve a broader range of students, parents and adults. The talented staff at Digital Respons-Ability is available for digital citizenship trainings for students, parents and educators.
Digital Respons-Ability offers deep-dive, holistic and on the ground digital citizenship education for K-12 students. They have taught tens of thousands of students of different ages and abilities. For more details on what they offer for students see here.
Digital Respons-Ability staff provides digital parenting trainings for schools and other organizations, and individual and family one-on-one consultations. For more about their education, including their unique Three Ms of Digital Parenting message, see here.
“Behavior change is not easy. It requires knowledge, a shift in attitudes and then finally a shift in behavior. Are we simply sharing knowledge or actually helping change behavior?”
