    With the pace that technology is moving, I was looking for a way to create a dialogue with students about the importance of becoming responsible digital citizens. After two years of teaching computers to emotionally impaired students in grades 2-10, I found that having them search information and create Power Points on the topic really wasn't getting the job done. Since finding the Common Sense Media lessons, and implementing them into my classroom, I feel that the students are finally getting the chance to discuss and understand how important it is to be responsible for what they choose to post online. I hope to share these lessons earlier in the school year next year and revisit them periodically as we progress through the year to reinforce the importance of the lessons.

    My passion for empowering students is what truly inspired me to implement a digital citizenship curriculum in my school and become Common Sense Media certified. I believe that developing digital citizenship is essential for students to be able to use technology and digital tools in a way that fosters collaboration and enhances their learning, as well as the foundation for effective 21st century skills.

    Whether you've been teaching digital citizenship all year or planning to get started next fall, it's important to remember to "talk with students, not at them when it comes to digital citizenship." So many of you have posted about using lessons to engage your students in conversations around the issues they are facing in their digital world. I thought this article was a great reminder to do just that- engage and listen! Author Craig Badura also provides some fantastic resources!

    How have you engaged your students on this subject? What tips can you provide educators just beginning to integrate digital citizenship in their classrooms?

    I'm looking for digital citizenship curriculum for K-5 teachers to employ in their classroom... students will have 1:1 chromebooks or could use in a station rotation model. Must be self-guided with little teacher face-to-face instruction and some data to track student progress. Can anyone recommend something?
    • Mrs. Wooten - Have you considered Comnon Sense Media? Their resources are great! They are age appropriate and if you all have iPads they have the curriculum in iBooks!

    Hi, I work as Technology Resource Teacher in Loudoun County, VA. I have teamed up with our school media specialist to implement the Common Sense Media K-12 curriculum to our 1st and 3rd grade students. These lessons have generated fantastic discussions with the students about ways in which they use technology at home, experiences with private and personal information, and cyberbullying. I feel that the curriculum has provided students with new awareness and strategies to be digitally literate and safe in online environments. We look forward to implementing new lessons next school year.

    Happy afternoon to all! I am a teacher at Canyon Crest Academy in the San Dieguito Union High School District. For this past year I have been involved in developing the Instructional Technology vision for our district (Mr. Fairchild, was our fearless leader--see his post below) as well as specifically looking at Digital Citizenship and how that might improve our school culture and community. I am excited to be one of the founding members of our new middle school (Pacific Trails) who intends to pilot Common Sense Curriculum to our new 7th grade class in the fall.

    Here is a link to their course offerings: https://www.commonsensemedia.org/. It is our hope that we can set the tone within this new campus and create a culture that harnesses the power of technology for the sake of "good" and gives young people the knowledge they need to make informed choices when they post or communicate or use technology in their everyday lives.

    Good morning. I am working as a Teacher on Special Assignment for Technology and Learning in a 7-12 district in San Diego County. For the last two years, I've led a team of teachers and administrators in developing an Instructional Technology vision for our district. As part of that process, we have discussed the need for our district to improve and increase the small amount of digital citizenship and safety instruction we provide for our students. We're looking at using the Common Sense curriculum as a basis for pilots at 3 middle schools in the fall and then rolling it out to the rest of our schools either in the spring or next year.

    I've attached a link to our Instructional Technology vision as well as our ideas that we've developed around some of the strategic themes, including Citizenship and Safety. I look forward to learning from this group!

    As the librarian at Sterling Elementary, I have partnered during the 2014-15 school year with my colleagues, the school guidance counselor and the technology teacher, to plan and implement lessons from the Common Sense Digital Literacy and Citizenship Curriculum. It is my goal to teach students how to use technological tools in a safe, discerning manner in this heavily visual and electronic world, and provide opportunities for them to evaluate and use online resources effectively, efficiently and ethically.
    • Ms. Van Der Wel - Common Sense Media provide fantastic resources and really engage students and promote discussion. Hope you enjoy the program as much as I have.

    The Department of Education released the results of the latest School Crime Supplement to the National Crime Victimization Survey, which showed that in 2013, the percentage of students who reported being cyberbullied fell to 6.9 percent in 2013, down from 9 percent in 2011. Motivation to continue preventative education!

    Are you seeing a drop in your community?

    As a technology teacher, I have been inspired to inform children using a balanced approach to digital citizenship. In contrast to the traditional fear method, teaching children about the realities of using different types of media prepares them for a digitally-driven future. I want children to be inspired to create and innovate on the computer and not be afraid of all of the available tools. For these reasons, I have decided to become a Common Sense Media Certified Educator.
