    I taught a unit to a group of 8th graders. I chose the middle school Unit 3 because I really like the look of the first lesson, "Trillion Dollar Footprint". The lesson was great and the students got engaged even though at this time of the year they tend to be a little "checked out". All of the lessons were great topics to me, however, the students struggled with the high-quality sites checklist. I wish I would have paired this with research they actually had to do in one of their other classes. The videos and supplements were well-developed, the only hiccup was that the mash-up site, http://www.masher.com, for the last lesson is no longer free and I couldn't find a substitute. I thought this would be a dynamic way to end the unit and it just didn't happen. Overall, I am very pleased with the curriculum and look forward to putting the whole program to use next year.

    This has been our first year implementing Common Sense Media at our school. All K-8 teachers were required to teach their classes a minimum of 3 hours and 45min of content. The feedback from our students and teachers has been so positive. The students in grades 3-8 throughly enjoyed the digital interactives, and the younger grades were very engaged with the K-12 online curriculum. All the material on the Common Sense website is so thorough and nicely put together. Thank you for offering such a great curriculum, that will benefit our students lives on a daily basis.
    One of my favorite discussions was after my students played the "Twalkers" interactive, they were expressing how hard it was to do two things at once, just as in the same way as talking on the phone and driving, is a difficult task and shouldn't be done simultaneously. These games really made them understand the task at hand!!
    We look forward to next year with this new integration into our curriculum.

      Have you thought about how you can continue to utilize the curriculum each year, keeping it fresh?

    I have enjoyed implementing the Common Sense Media curriculum into our library media center! I am wondering how I can incorporate Makerspaces into my digital citizenship curriculum for elementary school students?

    This has been our second year of integrating the Common Sense Media curriculum into our lessons at CIS, Bangalore. Over the year, we have been able to identify units from the curriculum to match grade levels all the way from kindergarten to IB. It has been quite an exciting year with the various conversations that have come up as a result of this. My favourite includes a conversation amongst teachers about how teaching the effective use of the internet is something that now needs to be done more formally.
    This year, we combined some of our Coffee with the Counsellor mornings with Connecting Families sessions, resulting in fantastic conversations on topics including Managing Screen Time and Photo Sharing. It's always fun to walk around campus and see board work with scribbles and art on creating a good password or being an upstanding student.
    What worked particularly well this year, was that we had a plan as a school. Given our technology program, we wanted to ensure that every student was introduced to the themes of digital citizenship some time during the academic year. We wanted the kids to see the relevance of it in their daily use of technology. With the success of the program this year, we will definitely continue to integrate the curriculum. Some changes that we may make along the way are that we may choose to deliver the curriculum earlier in the year so as to ensure some familiarity with the themes, as the kids work through the rest of the academic year. Maybe even combine this with Learner Profile Week and celebrate Digital Citizenship.

    I teach technology to about 250 middle school students. Common Sense Media has provided me with content and lesson ideas to help drive discussions about the students and their digital lives. One of my favorite lessons with my 7th graders is the “A Creator’s Rights” lesson. Students learn more about copyright and how certain works are protected. Following the lesson, the students wrote their own Happy Birthday song lyrics and then used Garage Band on their iPads to compose their own song with the lyrics. This is just one of the many engaging lessons I have used from Common Sense Media. I am always trying to find new projects for my students that coincide with the Common Sense Media lessons.

    As an IR teacher at Highlands Elementary School, I am amazed and grateful everyday for the valuable resources, I can support student learning at multiple levels. Commons Sense Media has enabled me to reach out to staff, students, and families with the goal of being safe and responsible digital citizens in our global society.

    I have used Common Sense Media for several years. I especially like using the video resources with middle school students as conversation starters on topics such as cyberbullying, digital footprint, email etiquette, and online reputations. The variety of curriculum enables me to choose what best fits our students for the developmental and tech use level appropriate for them. I also appreciate being able to direct parents to Common Sense Media as a good place to start becoming informed on digital citizenship topics, apps, and more.

    I am working on my Common Sense Certification. This year, I have done big Digital Citizenship units with all grade levels K-5 based on the units in Common Sense Media Education website. I particularly love the Mizzle the Mouse & Electra the Elephant for my younger students and the Trillion Dollar Footprint for my older students. Both units have stimulated in depth thinking and discussions between my students on the Digital Citizenship topics.
