My Digital Life is a 3.5 hour web-based platform that helps students develop critical digital skills such as appropriate texting practices, conducting quality online research, and how to prevent cyber-bullying. Many educators leading keyboarding, computer applications, marketing and digital input classes have found this program to be an engaging and helpful resource. My Digital Life is available at no cost to schools across the Commonwealth because of a statewide grant from Neustar, a telecommunications company based out of Sterling, Virginia. Archived Recording
