    Common Sense Education is very excited to share that we are launching our first-ever Digital Citizenship Pledge! By taking the pledge, educators are committing to empowering their students with the skills they need to think critically, behave safely, and participate responsibly with technology.
    As a bonus for taking the pledge, educators will receive our Back-to-School Guide, which provides tips and tools on everything from engaging students to bridging the home-school connection, all while empowering students to be good digital citizens.

    Happy #SocialMediaDay! Of course you could make the argument that we celebrate this everyday! But today is a day to reflect on your social media use and promote good use of social media!

    How many of you are connecting with your students on social media this summer? If you are, then encourage them to be positive and think before they post! https://www.commonsensemedia.org/videos/overs...

    How are you planning to keep up and stay in touch over the summer? If you're starting to map out your digital citizenship integration in the fall, share your plans and ask questions to the community, and your other PLNs! Along with this fantastic community, don't miss the Common Sense Education Teacher Center, an invaluable resource with some of the best tools, tips, and tutorials for using technology in the classroom.

    Avoid your own "summer slide" and continue to share and connect!!

    n Baltimore County Public Schools, we value the rich learning and communication experiences that technology brings to our students, classrooms, and family lives. We believe that our students must be taught to make good choices as they interact in these spaces for learning and for fun. We believe that with parents and guardians as our partners, we can help our students to gain skills, understanding, and dispositions that will enable them to be responsible and safe in these digital environments.
