    Working in a high school, I see over 1000 students every day who engage with multiple devices and an onslaught of information. In the way that as a Teacher Librarian I am charged with teaching students to seek and evaluate information and research effectively, as an Instructional Technology Specialist, I am charged with teaching students how to manage their online lives safely and appropriately, and teachers how to model this behavior. Being a Common Sense Media certified educator will show that I have the professional training needed to support digital citizenship efforts in my school and community, and give me the access to tools and resources I can use to continue educating my community.

    There were a number of factors that inspired us to complete our digital citizenship certification. We rewrote the K-12 technology curriculum because we believe it is important for students to have a firm foundation for online etiquette and responsibility. The need for our school district to have a more uniform curriculum arose due to the high number of our students dealing with interpersonal issues online. The interpersonal issues that our students regularly participate in include: digital drama, cyber bullying, and connecting with potential online predators. Other online troubles we have run into include sexting, misrepresentation of self, and other unsafe behaviors.

    We understand that our students lives now revolve around social media and technology. Digital citizenship should be a part of every student's education for this reason. Every student and adult in our building is impacted by our students ability to use technology wisely and appropriately. For this reason we find it incredibly important to increase not only our student’s knowledge but our staff’s knowledge as well. We wanted to make sure our technology curriculum was in alignment with ISTE standards, which includes digital citizenship. For this reason we are working towards completing our digital citizenship certification.

    With the amount of students who are engaging in online activities the need to provide and implement digital literacy and digital citizenship is exponentially growing. Our district decided to embrace the digital citizenship and begin to prepare students for the online world and the responsibility that comes along with it. . Sites such as http://www.commonsense.org provide teachers with a wealth or resources that help reach students at a level that they can connect with. Teachers are able to use the scope and sequence activities to engage learners at all levels with real life examples and situations they can relate to. The site is also a great place for parents to use as a “launching pad” of topics that may be uncomfortable for some to talk to with their children too.

    Students inspired me to implement digital citizenship curriculum. They were instantly engaged when we talked about social media, gaming, and their devices. The mention of their personal experiences opened a door to their lives outside of school, and they led the conversations about what kind of lives they wanted to lead. The Common Sense Curriculum helped me guide them in making choices that would keep them safe, as well as protect the safety and privacy of others online. Thank you Common Sense!

    I just finished watching the webinar from April 29 over Digital Compass. Really enjoyed it! I am looking to pilot this program next school year with my middle school kids. As a librarian, I am thinking I will try with sixth graders who still come in on a regular check-out schedule. Also I am going to go for the Common Sense certification for educators. Excited for next school year! Love the free curriculum!
    • Fröken Sullivan - Fantastic! Would love to hear your feedback when you do use it!

    Good food and an interesting topic of conversation always make for a fantastic evening, especially if educators, parents and teens are sitting around the table! The Family Dinner Project partnered with Common Sense Education for a Community Dinner at the Waring School in Beverly, Massachusetts. The dinner was a time for parents, educators, and students to come together for a shared meal and meaningful conversations about social media usage, Internet habits, and practicing good digital citizenship. Read more about the evening and get inspired to host your own event in your community!

    I was inspired to use Common Sense Media lessons due to an initiative our district implemented. I LOVE the lessons, videos, activities, and assessments that are part of this wonderful curriculum.

    As an elementary librarian, I had a great experience teaching digital literacy skills using commen sense media. Common Sense Media resources are user friendly, appealing to the students, and useful for parents.

    As a librarian, I was inspired to use Common Sense Media because all of our students have iPads. It was important for me to share with students, teachers and parents the importance of using technology safely and acting responsibly online. Common Sense Media has the lessons, activities and videos that are user friendly and very beneficial. Extremely happy with the FREE curriculum.
