    Hello, PLN! I have been a member of this group for quite awhile, but rarely post. I do, however, appreciate all of the great information that others are sharing.

    I am about to submit my application for the Common Sense Digital Citizenship Certified Educator program. One of my goals for the new school year starting in September is to increase the amount of time that I spend working with teachers in my school district on digital literacy and citizenship activities and instruction. As a former teacher-librarian, I often worked on these types of lessons/units/projects with my teachers. Now, as a District Technology Integration Specialist, I have been wearing many hats, and the digital citizenship piece has not been as big of a focus as I would like it to be. Upper administration in my school district is looking for programs that we can use to promote these skills, and I have recommended Common Sense Media as a "go-to" set of resources for this purpose. In addition, I will be working with a cohort of 45 teachers and teacher-librarians who will be part of a 1:1 Chromebook initiative in their classrooms. With their students now being online in class more than ever before, these skills are non-negotiables as the foundation of what we're doing. By working closely with this group of teachers, I hope that there will be a ripple effect into other classrooms in their schools and an interest in and capacity-building around other classroom teachers also using the Common Sense program and resources to teach students and their families about best practices in online participation.

    • Ms. Day - Mrs. Poelzer, what a great goal! I guess I didn't realize there was an application for certification for that. I appreciate the information and look forward to hearing more about how it's going for you, as it all unfolds. Best wishes!

    Hello, I implemented digital literacy and citizenship into my 5th-8th grade technology classes to help fill a gap in our curriculum. While academic uses of technology were covered, we wanted to address the advantages and cautions that are related to students' recreational uses of technology. I chose to complete the steps for certification to help ensure I use best practices when teaching my students.

    Has anyone folded in Project/Problem-based Learning (PBL) into your CSM lessons? Any ideas for authentic problems?
    • Ms. Sullivan - Would love to hear from other community members but have you looked at the Digital Bytes resources and videos: https://www.commonsensemedia.org/educators/digital-bytes? I would also take a look at the Digital Drama case examples from the Connecting Families resource: https://www.commonsensemedia.org/educators/co... Hope this gives a place to start. I encourage others to share their tips!!

    Hello, I am Elizabeth James, a teacher at CIS Bangalore. I have been in the teaching profession for over twenty years and it has been my constant endeavour to enrich my teaching methods as per the need of the hour. I would like to ensure that my students are equipped to use technology safely. This thought, coupled with the course ‘Common Sense Media Education on digital citizenship’ by Robyn Treyvaud, which I attended at CIS Bangalore, inspired me to implement digital citizenship & literacy and get certified. Moreover, I had a great experience with University of Cambridge, when I passed the CIDTT course in 2010, with distinction in two modules out of four.

    Hello, I am a Computer Skills Teacher at Lindenhurst Middle School. I have used Digital Passport in my classroom this year and many of the Common Sense Units in my 6th grade classroom. My students loved the real life aspect and had fun playing the games. I hope to continue to expand Digital Citizenship in my classroom next year.Common Sense Media is such a wonderful resource.

    Hello Everyone! I am a technology integration specialist for Zionsville Community School Corporation. I work with 5 of our K-4 elementary schools and 2 middle schools. I have used the CommonSense Media educator resources for years. I have worked with both students and staff in grades K-8 to help establish a firm foundation in digital literacy in our district. I facilitate two Parent Tech Nights in our district to both educate and establish an open dialog with our community about the importance of teaching 21st century skills to our students. CommonSense Media has been a resource I have directed parents, students, and staff over the years. I look forward to leading our elementary schools towards being a certified Digital Citizenship school through CommonSense Media.

    Hello, I'm a Library/Media Specialist in the Hazelwood School District in St. Louis, MO. I've been using Common Sense's Digital Citizenship Scope and Sequence for grades K-5 with my students during their library time. Many of my students know how to access sites on tablets when they are younger and desktops when they get older, so I wanted to educate them in using these powerful tools to their full and safe potential. Common Sense has helped me in this regard since I've been able to use their lessons to teach students about exploring the Internet like a field trip, how to be smart about your digital footprint, and how to search for materials to help with research projects. I know this program has started to succeed when my younger students will ask if a certain site is safe to give information to or can they just put their first name to continue. That is a huge step for them.

    Hi! I'm Jeremy Badiner. I am an Instructional Technology Coach in Gull Lake Community Schools in Michigan. I was a Certified Digital Citizenship teacher last year and am just now filling in the form for this year's certification (I know...but better late than never). I have implemented Digital Passport in my 3-5 building as the basics for Digital Citizenship. The kids (and teachers) love it. My plan next year is to have all 25 classrooms using Digital Passport before using the devices freely. I love the Common Sense Media tools and will continue to push their use with our students and staff. By being a certified teacher I feel there is more support for pushing Digital PAssport use in my school
