Curriculum-aligned digital-life education
Digital-life has added layers of complexity to school life and behaviour management. Dealing with child (and parent) behaviour stemming from social media use flows into classrooms and playgrounds and is thief of teaching time.
DiGii Social is an investment in the digital health and wellbeing of Year 5 and 6 students that ticks the boxes of being easy to implement, aligned to National Curriculum outcomes and a fun and immersive educational solution.
Every school is required to address the digital competency and wellbeing of children. DiGii is aligned with the National Curriculum’s competency requirements across Personal, Social and Community Health, Digital Technologies, Personal and Social Capabilities and Protective Education.
There are a library of 50+ digital-learning provocations that the teacher or administrator is able to launch onto the Message Board of all children. The curriculum is extensive, covering topics in DiGiiTal Health, DiGiiTal Security, Social Relationships, Social Safety, Social Identity and DiGiiTal Citizenship – and these change from Year 5 to Year 6.
On DiGii Social, children earn and lose points relative to their online behaviour. These points, called DiGiiTs buy privileges – for themselves and for others. DiGiiTs are used to motivate and reward outstanding DiGiiTal citizenship and are removed if a child is negatively moderated. DiGiiTs also feature on the Parent Platform, where watching a video adds valuable DiGiiTs to their child’s account. We know, and harness, the power of the nagging child!
We know that every school wants, and needs, actively engaged parents. DiGii Social provides a vital digital-life education portal for parents to access bite-sized, accurate information on helping their child – and themselves – to grow their knowledge, skills and confidence in managing themselves and their child online.
DiGii Social is purchased by schools on a per-student basis, with an annual subscription including:
- Child access to the DiGii Social platform
- 50+ educational animated Tutorials and Challenges
- Parent access to 50+ on-demand brief videos and downloads
- Teacher access to online Professional Learning modules
- Teacher / Administrator access to platform metrics for reporting and accountability purposes
