Dear Parent/ Student,
We at Stanes School Coonoor are delighted to share that we have partnered with Young Leaders for Active Citizenship (YLAC) for the YLAC Digital Champions Program 2021!
Founded by Harvard and Oxford alumni, Young Leaders for Active Citizenship (YLAC) aims to increase the participation of young people in the democratic process and build their capacity to lead change. The YLAC Digital Champions program will equip you with the right tools to keep you safe and secure online, learn more about privacy, your digital rights and how you can use the internet for your personal growth and development.
The YLAC Digital Champions program is designed as a self-learning course and will cover the following topics:
Digital Safety - Security and privacy online
Digital Wellbeing - Safety and resilience on social media and other online platforms
Digital Information Ecosystem - Becoming conscious consumers of information online
Digital Agency - Using the internet for personal growth and development
The program is planned to be conducted from 16th August to 10th October 2021. You would need to spend about 1 hour per week to be able to learn and absorb the content, and take the quizzes for each week.
The weekly material and quizzes will be posted here on this page every Monday.
For successful completion of the program, you will need to go over all the learning material as per timelines. Upon this, you will receive a certificate from YLAC. All the students who complete the program will also be eligible for a lottery and two students will win a tablet!
We urge you to participate in this program wholeheartedly, go through the program material as per the given timelines and commit to learning as much as possible from this experience.
We have some exciting learning content prepared for you in the form of videos, quizzes and real-life examples that will be shared with you starting next week! In the meantime, do check out this introductory video that captures the essence of the YLAC Digital Champions Program.
We can't wait to get started with you on your journey towards becoming Digital Champions!
Please make sure you complete the survey given below.
Good luck and see you soon!
Hello Future Digital Champion,
Welcome to the YLAC Digital Champions program!
Before you begin your journey with us, we would love to know more about you and your digital habits. How often do you use the internet? Do you help your parents access the internet too? What do you enjoy the most when online? What do you do in sticky situations? Don't worry, we are not testing you here, there will be no scores at the end of this survey. Please answer honestly, without the fear of judgement. :)
The information we get from this questionnaire will help us understand your needs and your internet usage better. It will help us make the Digital Champions Program better and more suited to your requirements.
Click on the link below to access the survey! It should not take you more than 15-20 minutes to complete it. This must be completed by 12 PM on Friday, 13th August 2021.
