The DQ Digital Citizenship Program aims to help students minimize risky Internet behaviors and increase critical thinking and global citizenship skills. 

The objective is to develop 8 Emotional-Digital Intelligence skills: digital citizen identity, screen time management, cyberbullying management, cyber security management, digital empathy, fingerprint management, critical thinking and privacy management.

This project is being developed in collaboration with the DQ Institute formed by the World Economic Fund, Varkey Foundation (Global Teacher Prize) and prestigious universities such as the University of IOWA (USA) and the University of Nanyang (Singapore), among others.
