Future YouTuber Academy

So you want to be a YouTuber? We do too! But, we’re not going to watch an endless succession of YouTube videos. Children have unique needs when it comes to digital literacy, so we’ll focus on the foundation of understanding the digital world around them and how to communicate safely and effectively in it. After all, video creation can be an excellent way for children to express themselves while learning digital video skills!
