Navigating the Digital Universe Named Media of the Year from Creative Child Magazine

Creative Child Magazine selected Navigating the Digital Universe as its Media of the Year award winner for 2021. Navigating the Digital Universe is a new curriculum developed by SAE International’s A World In Motion® (AWIM) and d’Vinci Interactive to teach children about their rights and responsibilities as digital citizens.

Navigating the Digital Universe provides blended hands-on and digital activities for elementary students to learn how to engage with technology and the digital world in a positive, responsible way. With the help of a trusted robot named Maze, students explore five planets to learn the importance of digital safety, communication, literacy, and ethics. The interactive, character-driven curriculum creates an emotional connection between young learners and content—providing compelling learning opportunities and dramatically improving knowledge retention.

Aligned with national education standards, the flexible program can be implemented in virtual, hybrid, or in-person classrooms. To aid in delivery, educators have access to a comprehensive curriculum as well as supporting PowerPoints—all provided via a user-friendly online portal. Students have access to printed and interactive AWIM Notebooks to record their questions, ideas, observations, and reflections.

One judge who reviewed Navigating the Digital Universe shared that it’s “a wonderful tool for educators. I love the graphics and found it very easy to navigate.” Another reviewer said, “this website is so important for every elementary school child to learn about digital safety, communication, literacy, and ethics. It's so well designed and easy to for them to use.”

The Creative Child Magazine Awards Program honors products, DVDs, CDs, books, games, and toys that nurture creativity and education in children. Unique to this awards program, submissions are reviewed by mothers, educators, and early education professionals and evaluated based on their individual opinions.
