    Like Ms. McNinch, I've had the opportunity to use Common Sense Media resources this year to teach digital citizenship. We've decided to use the curriculum district-wide in the coming school year.

    I am taking the Digital Citizenship coursework through Common Sense Media now. Very thorough!

    It's been awesome using Common Sense Media resources this year to implement digital citizenship curriculum. We expanded to using it across the district and it has kept everyone on the same page!

    I want to use the Common Sense Media and Digital Passport next school year. Great resources. Thank You

    Common Sense Media, more specifically, the Digital Passport, has been a great resource for me this year. The lessons and website have been a great resource for me to teach internet safety and effective internet methods to my students. I am a teacher in Dubai, UAE, and it is very positive to be able to bring these values to the East in such a fun and engaging way. We really enjoyed learning about these ideas and the parents enjoy spending time learning about these ideas with their children as well. Thank you!

    Our school presented lessons and videos from Common Sense Media to our Freshmen and Sophomore students who use 1:1 devices at our high school. We found the video resources and lesson plans to be beneficial for students and teachers as a means to start meaningful discussions, and define key concepts of Digital Citizenship and Digital Literacy. Some Common Sense videos were even shared with parents on our school's Twitter site. The Common Sense resources are well designed and offer multiple ways to engage learners. They also offer great resources for parents, teachers and administrators.

    Current generation students spend a major amount of their day using the internet for academics and social networking. It is a great challenge for all educators to ensure students stay safe online. Using Common Sense Digital Citizenship resources and curriculum, we at Pristine Private School have greatly benefited to its applicability to our students from KS2 to Post 16. We have successfully provided Digital Citizenship and internet safety training for our students.

    Did you ask students to create portfolios this year? Holistic portfolios allow students to showcase all the best traits and qualities of themselves. BUT creating portfolios can sometimes be seen as a chore. Check out these tips by Graphite Certified Educator for creating Meaningful Studio Portfolios.

    Hi! My Name is Cheri Hamilton.

    I work for Jacksonville State University in Jacksonville, Alabama (GO Gamecocks!) under a study grant entitled CORE. The grant is essentially responsible for introducing technology into the more rural schools in the area by providing treatment classrooms with a set of iPads and assistance in planning/using them. A component of my study was to incorporate some digital citizenship training into the treatment classrooms.

    I chose to use Unit 3 of the high school curriculum in a small 12th grade physics class of 14 boys and 4 girls.
    I spent 4 days with them, going through the lessons and the lesson assessments. I made google slides from the commonsense PDF lesson plans, adding some of my own flourishes to individualize the instruction. The class was very verbal about the topics- ranging from copyright vs. fair use to cyberbullying and gender issues online. I enjoyed hearing their perspectives on these touchy subjects and more than once had to stop the heated debating between the boys and girls.

    Although I had hoped for 100% accuracy on the unit assessment, the fact that ALL students earned at least a 75% was great. The teacher shared with me that many of his students have no access to the internet at home and only the ones with smart phones have a device to use at school (except for the lucky students in his class with the iPads) .

    The best takeaway for me was the openness and gratefulness the students showed me. They shared personal experiences as well as other places to find good information on these important topics.
