WHOO WHOO ARE WE?
CyberWise is a resource site for BUSY grownups seeking to help youth use tech safely and wisely. It was founded in 2011 by Diana Graber and Cynthia Lieberman after they received M.A. degrees in Media Psychology and Social Change, a pioneering field that focuses on how human behavior is affected by media. They decided to put their academic work and entertainment/media experience to work to benefit parents and kids.
Today Cyberwise is the companion site to Cyber Civics™, the middle school digital literacy program taught in 47 US states and internationally. Parents can learn more in the book by founder Diana Graber, "Raising Humans in a Digital World: Helping Kids Build a Healthy Relationship with Technology" (HarperCollins Leadership, '19).

"'No grownup left behind' is music to a parent's ears."
"Cyberwise is a valuable resource for any adult or child looking to expand their knowledge of web tools."
"If Cyber Civics or digital literacy is offered in your school or community, sign the kids up. If not, parents can check out learning tools on sites such as Cyberwise.org, which offer a range of lessons on digital safety and online citizenship."
"Your presentation and resources were extremely useful to our participating educators who are anxious to implement civic learning in their classrooms. You have certainly helped them meet their goal to equip students with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to become informed, engaged citizens."

"Cyberwise was just what I was looking for! As a parent of two young children I needed to educate myself! Your website is easy to navigate, well organized, and full of great research and information for parents who want to educate and protect their children online. Cyberwise helped me to feel confident navigating the otherwise scary world of kids and social media."
KELLY HARDY, PARENT
"You have done a magnificent job of taking what you know about the big picture and making it actionable--identifying a specific need and providing an imminently useable solution."
