We believe Internet Literacy should be taught alongside English. If you give a kid an iPad when she is 3, by the time they are in grade school there had better be a plan for teaching how to use the Internet. BRINK Foundation works with educators and students to create modern teaching strategies so that we can distribute free lesson plans that will help teachers at all levels reach our kids and stimulate their minds.
The next generation of coders are the ones that will fix our broken Internet. Let’s give them the tools to understand why it needs to be fixed.
We also need to listen to students of all ages and hear about their relationship with the Internet.
Note – we are currently trying to raise the funds to hire a full time writer and staff person with experience in Internet Literacy projects to help us achieve our goals.
