DIGITAL LITERACY RESOURCE PLATFORM
The Digital Literacy Resource Platform (DLRP) is an evolving collection of tools that you can use to learn more about online safety, privacy, information quality, creativity, and copyright. These tools aim to empower you with knowledge about connected learning environments and other parts of the digital world so you can make the online choices that are right for you. If you are responsible for educating others, these tools will also support you as you teach, parent, or fill other valuable guidance roles. Our goal is to support the co-creation of trustworthy and supportive digital spaces for all of us.
What tools are available?
A lot! The DLRP hosts tools that explore four main areas of digital life: privacy, safety, information quality, and creative expression. Within each area, tools address a range of issues, using different formats to do so. For instance, if you want to learn more about the primary federal laws that govern whether and how schools can share students’ private data, you could check out our Guide to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) that explains these laws in a user-friendly, Q&A format. And if you want to learn more about how to address cyber-bullying, you could take a look at our video on a “tale of tolerance.” If you’re a 6th grade educator looking for a lesson on password management, check out our middle-school privacy curriculum. Lots of good stuff!
