Welcome to the textED.ca website, and thank you so much for taking the time to visit!
As you know, technology allows youth to connect with each other in amazing ways. However, when technology is misused, disrespected, or abused it can lead to difficult situations and consequences. The textED.ca site has been created to help educate children in grade 7 and higher about how to use technology respectfully and to know what to do when someone crosses the line.
It is quite common for teachers to ask how they should begin discussing the online world and texting with youth in their classroom. Many teachers, like parents, wrestle with the question of how to balance a child's need for privacy with their job of teaching safety. We're here to help!
To access a teacher guide and lesson plans to engage your students in safe texting practices, and for more information on an exciting class project, please enter your contact information below and we will send you your own login and password to access our 'Teacher's Only' landing page.
