    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.
    • Fröken 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?
    • Fru 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!

    In 2013 Kamehameha Elementary School became a 1:1 laptop environment where each student in grades 4-6 now has access to a MacBook Air. Before being allowed to take the device home students needed to complete the Common Sense Media lesson scoring an average of 90%. The Common Sense Media lessons were very pertinent for my students and helped to build not only their confidence but also that of their teachers and parents.

    I just finished my final lesson from the E-rate toolkit today. I've now done the 3 lessons in benchmark grades 2 and 5. I really enjoyed the final 5th grade lesson today "Digital Citizenship", it was a great way to wrap up the year and send our students on to middle school.
    • Fru Mitchell - Sure! https://www.commonsensemedia.org/educators/er...
      I really enjoy using this lessons with the students. The 2nd graders love the lesson "Going Places Safely". I chose to do the benchmark grade program at my school, so I teach 3 lessons to 2nd and 5th grade.

      • Fröken Sullivan - What a great way to end the year! What about next year? You could always introduce digital citizenship with Digital Passport (www.digitalpassport.org) and earn your Common Sense Certified Educator badge early in the year!

        • den 20 May, 2015
      • Fru Mitchell - Yes, I will do this again next year! This is my 2nd year implementing the toolkit. I just submitted my renewal application for Common Sense Educator. I do need to submit earlier, because I introduce Digital Passport early in the year. I'm looking to work on becoming a Common Sense Certified School, that is my next step.

    • Fröken Almoutaa - I need to design my own curriculum for computer technology. Any resources, please? I am using the NETS standards.

    • Fröken Sullivan - And please let me know if you have any questions about the curriculum or Common Sense resources (lsullivan@commonsense.org)! I know other members of the community can speak to it as well.

      • Anna Lee Lum - This year, teachers at my school were encouraged to teach a minimum of one Digital Citizenship lesson in hopes that we could learn alongside our students and understand what Digital Citizenship is. Although I integrated technology within my curriculum units/projects and was comfortable using multiple apps, I knew I was less educated about what not to share and take from websites. Teaching multiple lessons increased my awareness on so many levels! I assumed students knew email and social media etiquette but was totally incorrect. I assumed they knew what information was deemed och mer...

      • Fru Baird - Our school has been teaching Digital Citizenship since we first implemented a one-to-one iPad program in 2011. We keenly understood that although our students know how to navigate electronic devices much better than any of us (as adults) that they would need guidance in how to safely and respectfully navigate the vast digital world! Having previously used a compilation of sources, we love using the one-stop Digital Literacy and Citizenship iBook series. The variety of topics included and the extras in the Library really have allowed us to tailor our program and connect the och mer...

Teaching multiple lessons increased my awareness on so many levels! I assumed students knew email and social media etiquette but was totally incorrect. I assumed they knew what information was deemed personal vs private and was wrong again. I assumed they knew how to efficiently navigate websites and research topics which they partially did well, but the lessons on Common Sense Media further made clear how much more effective they can be by using the precise keywords.
    Next year, I intend to implement the lessons earlier in the school year. In addition, this summer I will be sharing the Common Sense Media website with other educators so they can implement these lessons within their own classrooms.
