    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 显示更多...

      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 显示更多...

      Thanks Susan, I have only four work days left in this school year so I will be picking this up again the first week in August. I appreciate your feedback and look forward to more sharing of information soon.

    In Common Sense's newest report, we examine the latest scientific research about problematic media use. Use the findings as a springboard to talk with parents and students about the role media and technology play in their lives. Read more via the link below and let us know what you think and how you'll use it!

      This is an excellent article. I referenced it in our school newsletter to make teachers and parents more aware problematic media use among teens. It's a problem that is easily overlooked.

    My name is Kara Heichelbech, and I am a digital communications teacher at Clark-Pleasant Middle School in Indiana. I recently joined the Indiana Connected Educators board, and I was very thrilled when they asked for two of us to become certified through Common Sense Education so we could train others in the state on the importance of digital citizenship. To me, digital citizenship is as an important skill to teach our students as holding a pencil. How can we expect them to be productive citizens in our society if they don't have the toolbox for success? There are very few jobs/careers in our world that don't utilize technology in some capacity. My job as an educator is to prepare our youth for success, and without digital citizenship, we set them up for failure in our current society.

    This question was recently raised on another community and I would love to get your thoughts: What is your experience with taking the digital citizenship webinars for professional development? Did you have any complaints or concerns? Positive or negative experiences? Very helpful or not as helpful? Do you have ideas to share for other digital citizenship professional development opportunities online? Thank you for your help with this discussion!

      Did you receive replies to this post? Due to ever shrinking budgets we are hoping to create more online PD because the fact is our teachers get very little PD any more and extremely important topics are simply being mentioned in emails. As we develop these courses this coming August I will try to keep posting here. See my post above to Mrs. Fisher.

    We start using Edmodo in my school in Gr3. I am wondering if any of you use it that young, and if so, what avatars do you allow your students to have. I ask them to use the avatar creating feature in order to practice staying safe while online, but other teachers I work with disagree and allow them to have pictures of pets, or even themselves...
    What are your thoughts?

      Yes, and I have also used in 2nd grade successfully. Students and parents love it! Just make sure to teach expectations and model using each area

      Hi! I have used it as low as 3rd grade but I only allow them to use the avatar creating feature up until the middle of 5th grade. By then we have talked about what is safe and what is respectful enough times that they don't abuse the privilege to upload pictures. They also know that if the abuse it, they will have consequences.

    Working on my Digital Citizenship Application for my school. Has any one else done this? If so, what are your recommendations? We currently are using the Common Sense Information-Digital Bytes and Digital Compass.

    This year was my first year teaching in the middle school setting. My teaching position was restructured for this year, allowing my course to focus on Technology skills for our digital learners. In helping our students become digital citizens of our online world, I used resources from Common Sense Education. I have absolutely loved everything the website has to offer. Most recently, I have been exploring the attached link, in preparation as the school district I work for will be transitioning 1-to-1 within the the next 16 months.
