    Knowing I needed to teach digital citizenship I was thrilled when I found the Common Sense educator resources several years ago. Everything I have used with the Common Sense Media curriculum has been top notch. I have used the lessons for 3-5 and 6-8 for the last few years. It engages my students while teaching them pertinent digital citizenship skills. My students have really enjoyed Digital Passport. I had my graduating 8th graders preview a bit of Digital Compass which I intend to use with my middle school students next year. I decided to pursue the Common Sense certified educator to get credit for what we are already doing at our school and will continue to do next school year.

    Game making is a fun and challenging way for students to show what they know. It can be fun and challenging, energizing classrooms and getting students thinking in new, exciting ways.

    The tools highlighted on Graphite's Top Pick List are all great options for entry-level game creations. Do you have other tools you're using for game creation, at any level?

    We launched our BYOD 1:! initiative this year and used Commonsense Media and their curriculum to teach digital citizenship and online safety. Parents, Teachers and Students needed a place for great resources as we started this learning path. We are so grateful to have this kind of resource and support to make this program successful!

    With our district adopting the Bring Your Own Technology initiative in three phases and Rock Ridge High school being the one of the schools embracing this initiative in phase one, I think it is extremely important to get out students ready for this change by teaching digital literacy to them and get them to reflect and practice on how to be responsible digital citizens. Common Sense Media provides you with a wealth of resources and lessons that help you teach your students to be ethical users and producers of online content.

    I attended an in person training session by Common Sense Media representatives. I found it very interesting and I realized the importance of educating students about Digital Citizenship. After talking to my students I realized how clueless they were with regard to Digital Citizenship. I visited the Common Sense Media website and found great interactive lessons that I could teach to my IB1 Language B students. I plan to teach more "bytes" to other classes as well. Technology has become such an integral part of our lives, but I've noticed that we have not really reflected enough with our students and parents on all the ethical challenges that we are faced with. Nowadays, we need to incorporate moral behavior into our digital lives to really be a "good citizen". The Common Sense Media website is an invaluable tool to aid teachers, students in parents in this educational endeavor. I believe that it is very important that we educate our students about digital citizenship, for now and for the future.

    I am in the process of transitioning from a classroom teacher to a Technology and learning coach, and after attending a Common Sense Media full-day workshop at my school, I realized that Certified Teacher program would be very helpful to my success in this position. In fact, by exploring the lessons and integrating them into my unit/lesson plans in either a "drag-and-drop" style or highly modified to meet the particulars of a course of study, I found them very effective as evidenced by student engagement and solidifying students' understanding of the related course concepts. I only had the chance to do a few lessons in my classes, but I can see that in my role as the Tech Coach at both the MS and HS sections, that all of our students at these levels could really benefit from Common Sense Media resources. I am also looking forward to sharing this with our parent community next year as well, as their feedback about the lesson I used for parent involvement seemed to provoke some good conversations about cyberbullying.

    I am applying for my school to be a certified school. I am very excited about our second year of digital citizenship curriculum implementation. We know our children are all digital citizens, but we want them to be good digital citizens. Through the use of the e-rate toolkit and Digital Passport, our students gave a strong foundation and the skills needed to be model safe online behaviors. We hope our efforts will be recognized, so we can spread awareness in the community and with parents.

    I have recently taught a full unit incorporating 5 digital citizenship lessons to my 6th graders. I believe this is so important in this day and age in which students rely on technology on a daily basis. They must understand how to communicate their ideas safely and effectively online. The students were able to relate to the lessons and were eager to share their knowledge.
    • Mlle Almoutaa - Hi Mrs. Wallace, Are you open to share your lessons?

    Twitter can act as a great filter for parents and educators, and provide some transparency when it comes to what’s going on inside the classroom. However, the border between personal and professional is increasingly fuzzy. Are you using twitter to communicate with parents or students?
    • Mme Wooten - Great article! One of the principals at the campus I serve was just asking me to help her with Twitter next year. :) Thanks for sharing!
