    I absolutely LOVE Common Sense Education! I am the Teacher Librarian at a 1-to-1 iPad elementary school, so it is so important for our students to have digital literacy and safety skills. All of our students have the Digital Literacy and Citizenship iBooks downloaded on their iPads. The general education teacher and I co-teach the lessons. We love that we can do them in the order of the students needs. For example, one class was having some cyberbullying issues, so we taught the "What's Cybebullying?" in Unit 3 of their iBook. We sent home notes to parents letting them know the lesson we taught and asking them to go over the learning with their child.
    Our school district has a conference every year titled, "Highway21" , this year I will be presenting an overview of all the amazing materials and curriculum that Common Sense Education has to offer.

    I’m excited to share with you that today, Common Sense launched our new advocacy effort Common Sense Kids Action. Common Sense Kids Action aims to build a movement of parents and teachers to make kids and education our nation's top priority.

    The mission of Common Sense Kids Action is to promote access to high-quality digital learning experiences with well-trained teachers; ensure kids are able to harness the power of technology, while also keeping their personal information private and protected; advocate for access for all children to high-quality early education.

    Our kids deserve an education that prepares them for the future and the opportunity for lifelong success. Together, we can make sure that happens and look forward to working with you as we begin this exciting new effort!

    I am taCommon Sense curricula to 2 of my classes and it was amazing to see them changing from a carefree attitude to a very responsible and well thought through actions based approach to clean their digital footprints. My students enjoy taking tip sheets home and in some cases teach their parents, tips for safe internet usage. I am planning to involve my students in a Common Sense Campaign where they will work with younger students to help them understand and apply safe practices.

    I have enjoyed seeing the students take ownership of their digital footprint. It is very important that all students K-4 are aware of digital citizenship when using technology. By starting in the elementary grades, these students will learn early and grow up with an awareness of responsibility they have to keep themselves safe on the internet.

    I enjoy teaching the Common Sense Media Program to all 850 of my students that I teach in library classes at two elementary schools I work at. It is vitally important that students become responsible, safe,and ethical users of technology. In teaching K-6 students I have found that digital citizenship is really the core of all technology use. Starting early is key in preparing students to do this.

    I am very excited that I have just completed teaching my students the different Digital Passport Lessons. What a fun and educationally way to learn. I have enjoyed watching their growing understanding of the importance in creating a good digital footprint for their futures and increasing their awareness of copyright issues. I believe they are better prepared to be digital citizens as our county moves to BYOD.

    Common Sense Education's Pause and Think Online characters are back! In this fun video for elementary students, the characters illustrate the difference between online and offline footprints to encourage kits to be safe online. The video is a fantastic accompaniment to the lesson Follow the Digital Trail.

    Play it for your students and let us know what you think!

    kids are beginning to use Compass today - wondering how I can view their progress....?? Please advise and thanks!
    • Ms. Sullivan - Great question. At the end of each module, students will receive a scorecard with two types of scores: the Progress Score and the Game Score. The scorecards display bronze, silver, and gold badges for both the progress on the story as well as the game scores. Students can “save” their scorecard by printing it in the Web version or saving it to the photo album on tablets. You can learn more about the Assessment in the Educator Guide:https://d2e111jq13me73.cloudfront.net/sites/d... more...

    With our school going to a 1 to 1 device program, there was a need for students to learn about being responsible with their digital devices and how to be safe online. Digital Citizenship helped teach students how to create a user name, knowing what types of information should be kept private, giving credit to the owner of digital information and how to navigate the internet safely. Students also learned how to use an email to communicate with others. I know my students can do these things because of the assessment at the end of Unit 1.

    Digital citizenship lets me know that my class knows how to use the internet safely. They know how to respect and treat each other kindly digitally, keeping private information private, how what is posted can leave a digital trail, and using keywords and finding credible sites to reference.
