Digital Citizenship

Virtue in Media

NCA has decided to use Virtue in Media to educate kids in grades K-8 about how to honor God with technology. We believe that technology education must be an integral part of today’s teaching curriculum. Virtue in Media was created by Protect Young Eyes, an organization that speaks to parents and kids around the country. The content is grounded in Holy Scripture and includes education about the latest apps, devices, and technology trends impacting kids today.
