    I am inspired to implement digital citizenship and literacy in my classes because I feel that our students need to know the world they are stepping into. It is important that they realize the responsibility and consequences of their actions both online and off although an online mistake may be harder to erase or recover from. I feel that by becoming certified it will show my students that their welfare is one of my highest concerns.

    I am the Lab Manager at my school and we have been doing Common Sense Media for two years now. I am inspired to this Common Sense Media to help made a difference in how students use the internet and how it helps in their everyday life for as showing respect online as well as face to face, and understanding how important it is to be safe while being online.

    I am a library media specialist and have been using Common Sense Media and Digital Passport for the past two years. I am inspired to teach digital citizenship to my students because I believe that we have a responsibility to our students to equip them with the skills they need to be successful in their lives, both now and in the future. The digital world is their world and without the understanding of how to navigate it, our students cannot be successful.

    Friday, March 6th marks the start of the fifth annual National Day of Unplugging, an initiative launched by the national nonprofit group Reboot to help people take a break from their always-on lifestyles. It is a day dedicated to disconnecting from the demands of our always-on lifestyle. The day serves as a helpful reminder that finding a healthy balance with technology is an everyday priority.

    Before you unplug, and encourage your students' families to, participate in #realtime, a social media campaign that targets a primary way young children learn how to use (and abuse) media and technology, by watching their parents. If this doesn't sound familiar, check out a few examples below.

    The idea is to reflect on the example you're setting for your kids (or your students). How do you make room for #realtime?

    I have been using Common Sense Media resources for three years now. I was inspired to become a certified education because I feel it is important for our students to be educated about digital citizenship. Students need to be aware of the benefits and repercussions their actions could have. I really enjoy the resources provided because the lessons are very well put together and provide age appropriate activities. I also do the Digital Passport with my 7th grade keyboarding class and they love it! I was inspired to become certified for the betterment of my students.

    On March 1st, 65 Canadian International School Bangalore spent the day learning with Robyn Treyvaud. All were excited and motivated by the resources provided by Common Sense Media. We are well on our way to implementing Common Sense into all grade levels preK-12. Did you see the family tip sheets? They are great!

    Has anyone used "Cite This For Me" (https://www.citethisforme.com/) and can provide a review?
    • Mrs. Lawlor - I was using calvin.edu, but found "cite this for me" much easier for the students.

    On March 2nd, 2015, the New York City Department of Education is lifting their cell phone ban and empowering schools to make instructional decisions regarding the use of personal devices for learning.

    Lifting the ban is just the first step. Lisa Nielsen, director of digital engagement and learning at the NYC DOE, shares how the district is preparing schools to move forward. “An important part of this work is supporting schools in putting the right building blocks in place for success. This includes providing professional learning opportunities that address how to harness the power of the devices for learning. It also means ensuring staff is able to incorporate digital safety, citizenship, and responsibility into the work they do with students." This includes partnering with Common Sense to provide professional development.

    To learn more about lifting the ban read the original post on the Common Sense Education blog at link below.

    Does your school allow cell phones in the classroom? If so, what support do you have in pace, as Lisa puts it, to put the right building blocks in place? What lessons have you learned?

    Having a classroom full of students that have access to an iPad enables me to model, share, teach and present in a more interactive and exciting way. While technology helps me to make my lessons fun, interesting and more effective, it also places my students at risk if I do not equip them with the necessary knowledge to keep safe when using social and digital media. I believe it is my responsibility to give students the time and guidance necessary to understand the power they are being entrusted with before I introduce them to a device that is an outlet to so many new and ever changing avenues. This is why I decided to implement digital citizenship and literacy.
