Common Sense has recently launched a Parent's Guide to Kid's Learning, a great new resource for parents of elementary students. As educators, it's a tool that you can share with your students' families to help build a stronger connection between home and school and to help parents reinforce what their kids are learning during the day. Check it out and share your thoughts!
I am a Technology Resource Teacher. Each year I teach Internet Safety. Since I am in an elementary school, we as teachers, have been protecting our students by carefully picking out the websites they will go to. The past couple years, I realize this policy limits our students learning experience. The students also share with me stories of “things that have happened” and I realized that though they are young, they need to know how to be safe online and how participate responsibly in learning communities. This year we are implementing the curriculum in K-5 and teaching our students how to be good digital citizens. Now our students are learning how to use the internet for research, how to communicate in online communities, and ways to create good usernames and strong passwords. The world is changing. Students need to know how to be safe and communicate in a positive and constructive way. We will soon be a BYOT school and our use will open even wider. Parents will may also face issues that this new technology brings into their homes. We are grateful for the parent tips and your help in planning our parent info nights.I am a Technology Resource Teacher. Each year I teach Internet Safety.

I am inspired to teach Digital Citizenship because there is a huge need in our society to teach young people how to be responsible with social media. I realized after teaching several lessons last year that many students are shocked when you tell them that what they do behind a screen should NOT be different than what you would do in person. Most of the time they look like the cat that ate the canary when you mention some of the unacceptable behavior that we often see. We have a brand new school and thought this would be a fantastic way to get our kids of on the right foot!
Hi, I am a technology teacher and I feel that Digital Citizenship is important for students to learn early. The more practice they get the better citizens they will be as adults. In this ever increasing world of technology the bad people are getting smarter and we as educators along with their parents must send the students out into the world armed with as much knowledge to protect themselves as possible
Working in a school that has recently gone 1:1, it has become more and more apparent to me that everyone involved in this change to our education setting should be as informed as possible on the topic of Digital Citizenship. As important as I feel it is for students to realize what they say on the Internet does have an impact and carries weight, I also feel that Common Sense gives excellent opportunities to better educate our parent community on what they can do to be more aware of their child's Internet safety.
A great read for all educators who are managing devices in the classroom. As teachers know, setting and communicating clear expectations is half the battle! Read all the tips and tricks from the Common Sense Graphite blog article linked below.

With the amount of technology now being used by our students in school and in their personal lives, I felt it was very important to make sure that my students not only had the knowledge of how to make good choices when online or using technology, but also to understand the implications of not making good choices. Common Sense Media offers so many options for teaching these kinds of lessons to all of my K-5 students, and their parents, as well.
With my school going one-to-one with iPads, it was extremely necessary for me as a teacher to show them the difference between right and wrong choices online. At the age of 8 and 9, students do not realize the impact of what they say or do has on their futures. These lessons provide my students with the understanding of why to do the right things, and have helped me as a teacher to learn the best ways to teach that information.
