Testimonials from previous participants:

Participating in the Digital Citizenship course provided by the Syba Academy assisted us in understanding the imperative role of educators as models and stewards of digital citizenship in 21st century learning environments. It also provided us with the foundation for the digital citizenship practice and programmes in the Mount Alvernia iCentre.

Importantly, the course was the catalyst for us to evolve from a digital citizenship approach that was haphazard, to one that is intentional and systematic.

The Digital Citizenship course was the most practical and relevant professional development we have participated to support us in this. We highly recommend this course to any professional interested in developing or improving a successful digital citizenship programme within their school.

"There were a lot of elements that are immediately applicable to my practice at school. The reading was thought provoking and changed my opinions about the subject matter."
