Local and regional schools, including Shulamith High School, Midreshet Shalhevet, Torah Academy for Girls, Beth Rivkah Chabad, Caskey Torah Academy of Philadelphia, and Eitz Chaim Schools of Toronto, recently participated in the spring training program through the Digital Citizenship Project.
Since 2014, under the leadership of Dr. Eli Shapiro, the Digital Citizenship Project has been conducting parent, faculty, and student programs that teach digital responsibility in the age of technology. More than 10,000 parents and school faculty from across North America have participated in their programs.
Psychologist Dr. David Pelcovitz said, “Dr. Shapiro’s approach serves as an invaluable roadmap for intelligently finding the balance between love and limits in helping our children responsibly use technology.”
In addition to curriculum trainings, The Digital Citizenship Project offers a host of programs that include parent workshops, data analysis of school community technology profiles, and grade-level fireside chats. Dr. Shapiro’s work has appeared in numerous national publications and he has lectured for internationally recognized organizations, including Agudath Israel of America, Consortium of Jewish Day Schools, International Conference of Chabad-Lubavitch Shluchim, Nefesh International, Prizmah-Center for Jewish Day Schools, Torah Umesorah, and Yeshiva University.
