You, your friends, and your classmates can support each other in building healthy digital habits.
One way to do this is to share information about digital wellbeing at your school.
In this lesson, you will create a group or class project to educate others in your school about healthy digital habits.
You will use a planning document to organize one of these projects: Posters to hang in your classroom or school, A website that discusses digital wellbeing, Or a slideshow to present and share with other students.
For this lesson, you will work as a class or in small groups depending on your teacher’s preference.
Listen to your teacher’s instructions to find out if you will work as a whole class or in small groups.
