    Hello, my name is Yolanda and I have taught “Introduction to Computers” to kindergarten through fifth grade students for ten years. Earlier in the year, I asked my students to prepare a spreadsheet listing the social media sites they use on a regular basis. I was surprised to learn that eleven of the twenty one fifth grade students in one of my classes used Facebook even though they didn’t meet the age requirement. I performed a Google search of my students and discovered that five of those students had not changed their privacy settings to protect their personal information. I have repeatedly emphasized that they must change their privacy settings. At that point, I decided to become a Common Sense Digital Citizenship Certified Educator.

    I have used Common Sense Media resources in my technology classes for several years and just recently learned about becoming a Digital Citizenship Certified Educator. Teaching digital citizenship to my middle school students is so important. They need to be safe, be smart, and know that their digital footprint is out there for the world to see forever.

    The blog linked below highlights how one educator used a tech tool (Remind Chat) to teach a key digital citizenship skill: appropriate online communication. The blog gives a fantastic lesson flow to follow, it's a great example of how to take advantage of the great ed tech tools our there and focus on digital citizenship. I'm sure many of you are already doing something similar! If so, please share: are you using any great tech tools to teach digital citizenship skills?

    Hi, I am a technology teacher and I feel that Digital Citizenship is important for students to learn early. The more practice they get the better citizens they will be as adults. In this ever increasing world of technology the bad people are getting smarter and we as educators along with their parents must send the students out into the world armed with as much knowledge to protect themselves as possible

    We are an international school located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. We use Common Sense Media as a resource to help bridge the gap between digital natives and digital immigrants. Communication to parents, teachers and students is vital as our experiences with digital citizenship and digital literacy helps us ensure we make positive choices and communicate safely online. Our students are not only citizens of the world, they are citizens of the online world.

    We are an Independent K-12 school. I teach technology for grades K through 5, and work with teachers to help them integrate technology into the curriculum. We are not a 1:1 school, but most of the students use technology almost daily in school and at home. It is important to teach Digital Citizenship to students from an early age, not only for their safety, but to help them learn to use this tool responsibly and appropriately.

    I like Commonsense Medias links and resources for parents. It gives them tips and suggestions to help their students and to try to ensure they are safe online. In addition, I know they appreciate the reviews of apps and videos.

    My school became a Common Sense Certified School last year for the first time. We feel it is extremely important to educate our students on the importance of being good digital citizens. Since we are a 1-to-1 school, parents can be concerned for their children's safety online. By teaching out students and parents lessons and tips from Common Sense Media, we feel we are truly preparing our students for a largely digital future.

      • Mme Robertson - Hi digital gurus,
        I'm looking for an inquiry unit to use in a primary library (yrs 3 - 6) that introduces kids to information literacy, especially focussing on catalogue and/or web search skills. Any ideas, directions or units you've used before that have been engaging and had good learning outcomes would be awesomely appreciated! The kids already use Edmodo and some web tools but their general tech experience and research skills are relatively low.
        Thank you!

    • Mlle Sullivan - Hi Mrs. Robertson, Check out: https://www.commonsensemedia.org/educators/scope-and-sequence, and click on the Information Literacy Icon. It will pull up all the relevant (free) lessons on the topic. "The Key to Keyword" lesson might be just what you're looking for (https://www.commonsensemedia.org/educators/lesson/the-key-to-keywords-3-5). Hope this helps!

    Evening Colleagues,

    I hope this message finds you well. I have a question, which could use your professional insight. My school is in need of applicable policies and procedures for Electronic Communication Devices, particularly students bringing their own device (BYOD). If you are aware of effective, well facilitated BYOD devices policies and procedures for your institution, it would be greatly appreciative if your could pass along the insight. Thank you in advance for your clarity and attention.
