New BG Library Lesson Program: 3rd - 8th Grade


Digital Passport is an online curriculum designed to teach children how to safely and responsibly navigate the Internet. The courses can be accessed for free by the instructors, who are then able to monitor the students' progress. Digital passport lessons are presented as games that reward progress with badges. Students access their accounts via Destiny.
