So much of our youth’s time is spent online – an average of 7 hours and 38 minutes per day for youth aged 8 to 18. It’s time we recognize that digital media literacy skills truly are survival skills. Equipping young explorers with the tools to face the digital environment can have a massive impact on future generations. In fact, 80% of parents favor prioritizing digital literacy.
"With so much of our time spent online and misinformation spreading like wildfire, conquering the digital environment really is the next frontier, I'm excited to partner with Seekr to create the next generation of digital young explorers." - Bear Grylls
