San Francisco:Facebook recently announced the launch of a “Digital Literacy Library” to help young people build the skills they need to safely enjoy online technology.

“There are 830 million young people online around the world, and this library is a resource for educators looking to address digital literacy and help these young people build the skills they need to safely enjoy digital technology,” Antigone Davis, Global Head of Safety at Facebook, wrote in a blog post.

The interactive lessons and videos, developed in partnership with the team at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University for educators of youth aged 11 to 18, can be downloaded for free.

Divided into themes such as privacy and reputation, identity exploration, security, safety and well-being, the lessons reflect the voices of young people from diverse geographies, socio-economic backgrounds, ethnicities and education levels.IANS
