    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.

    I currently oversee an online professional development program focusing on training teachers integrating educational technology in the classroom. I came across Common Sense Media and wanted to learn more about all of the resources available. We have a very large school district and it has been a challenge establishing a consistent learning framework with limited funding. I inquired with Common Sense Media and signed up for the Digital Citizenship Training course by Common Sense Media - San Diego County Office of Education - Haiku Learning. After completing the course, I will be conducting training to help our schools get Common Sense Media certified with the ultimate goal of getting our school district certification. Looking forward to learning more about Digital Citizenship this Edmodo PLN group.

    With summer break upon us, look into how HaugoMath can help with your flipped, integrated, or personalized classroom next year. I will be spending time upgrading some of my videos. Check out these 4 to get a true sense of what HaugoMath videos are aiming to be: Systems, Inequalities, Mean/Median/Mode, Quadratic Formula.

    I'm curious: how do you know when the work you're doing, teaching your students the skills to be good digital citizens, has paid off? What characteristics or behaviors are they displaying?

      They can cite their sources correctly and can explain why it is important / fair to do so. They know where to find music / images that are free to use legally in their work.

    Our school is submitting our application to become a Common Sense Media Digital Citizenship School. We are excited to use this certification to communicate to our families and community that Digital Citizenship is important to our school.

    In the last days or weeks of the school year, are you focusing any time on digital citizenship? Any end of the year efforts to ensure your students are savvy about how they use the internet and mobile devices-- and avoid the summer perils of free time and incredible access? Please share how you're getting your students summer ready!

    Are your students self-proclaimed multitasking masters? Some may see benefit from learning how to work around disruptions, since they’re going to need this skill for their entire lives. On the other hand, research shows that media multitasking can have a negative impact on school performance. You may be able to control multitasking in the classroom but what about at home, during homework time?

    If you're looking for tips, dive into our Connecting Families Conversation Case and Family Tip Sheet (https://www.commonsensemedia.org/educators/connecting-families/distraction-and-multitasking) to guide discussions with students and parents about managing media use at school and at home.

    How do you manage multitasking in the classroom?

    Hello! My name is Susan Fisher and I am one of two Instructional Technology Specialists at Woodward Academy's Lower School in College Park, Georgia. This was my first year at Woodward after having worked in the professional learning department of a large public school district prior. I have enjoyed really getting to dive deeper into building a tech savvy PLC here at the Lower School.

    In my first year at Woodward Academy, I have integrated professional development for staff, held parent coffees, as well as directly pushed into classrooms to lead lessons on the various digital citizenship topics.
    Just some of the topics that we have addressed are cyber safety and security, effective use of search engines, evaluation of reliable sources, cyber bullying, cyber footprints, role of social media in today's society, and home/school protocols for appropriate technology usage. Much of our research on the above topics starts with Common Sense Media

      I work in the Educational Technology Department for the Anchorage School District in Anchorage, Alaska. We are in the process of developing PD for our teachers regarding Digital Citizenship. We also want this to be integrated with student and parent training. Does your school have a mandated curriculum for Digital Citizenship/Ethics. We are reviewing at quarter long course created by a school district in Alaska that pulled a lot from Common Sense Media. They required their Middle School Students to take and pass the course as part of their curriculum and a prerequisite for more...

      We just created a vertical alignment of technology skills that need to be addressed in each of our grade levels. Once we had an agreed upon skill list, we created a course for each grade that assures that each of the standards are being covered and where. The course itself is a pullout/push in model where we go into the classroom during various other classes to embed the skills organically as part of various lessons and projects. We also cover both teacher PD and parent coffees within our yearly plans so that our entire community is involved as informed stakeholders. Common more...
