Social media has the capacity to escalate an individual’s potential or to crush it completely. Making poor choices can impact others and research has shown this personal pain can create long term mental health challenges. DiGii teaches our pre-adolescents how to be capable, responsible digital citizens and I believe it will quite simply save precious lives. Every primary school needs DiGii to be available for their students to prepare them to be caring responsible digital citizens.”– Maggie Dent
