Readers who are concerned about the digital risks facing today's young people should check out CyberWise, which describes itself as "a resource site for BUSY grownups who want to help youth use digital media safely and wisely." Launched in 2011, CyberWise was created as a companion site to Cyber Civics, a digital literacy curriculum designed for middle school classrooms. With the tagline "No grownup left behind!" CyberWise offers myriad resources geared towards educating its visitors about all aspects of safe and smart internet use. For example, the Learning Hubs section contains quick introductions on topics ranging from specific digital media platforms (e.g. TikTok, Fortnite) to more general concepts such as balancing tech use and reputation management. Readers will also find a roundup of recent news on digital media, links to digital citizenship games, and a regularly updated blog with posts such as "Teen Tech Lingo Parents Should Know." CyberWise was co-founded by its director Diana Graber, a digital literacy expert and author of the book Raising Humans in a Digital World, and by Cynthia Lieberman, a content marketing and media communications strategist and a social media marketing instructor for the University of California-Los Angeles Extension.

Realize not all resources in the Scout Report are free. However I was put off by the number of ads in the right column. Cannot recommend this site, although there is good free information on the site. Believe the summary should have included the number of ads at the site. Just my opinion
