    Our students have been utilizing 1:1 with BYOD devices. We have also given them gmail and google apps accounts. They needed a way to demonstrate their ability to navigage the internet in a responsible way. We decided that requiring all 3rd graders to complete the passport would be a great foundation for a student as they began their road towards creating a digital footprint and staying safe online.

    Following the success of Digital Passport, and in response to an overwhelming request for a middle school interactive, Common Sense Education is happy to announce the release of our latest interactive learning tool- Digital Compass. Digital Compass is the only educational interative that lets kids explore how decisions made in their digital lives can affect their future and relationships.

    In this animated choose-your-own-adventure interactive, developed for sixth- to ninth graders, students step into the shoes of one of eight characters to experience the twists and turns of daily digital life. Digital Compass rounds out our suite of digital citizenship resources for school children of all ages.

    I encourage you to play Digital Compass and let us know what you think! And join Common Sense Education’s Kelly Mendoza and Brisa Ayub for our next EdWeb Digital Citizenship webinar: Helping Students Make Good Digital Decisions with Digital Compass, to learn how you can implement Digital Compass into your own digital citizenship program.

    • Mrs. Snyder - The Common Sense Media curriculum has empowered our students with the knowledge of what is acceptable behavior, as well as their responsibilities, when they use technology. All of our students use computers and/or ipads, so our teachers are aware of the importance of digital literacy and citizenship. Together, we strive to keep our students safe! The Common Sense Media link on our school website can be accessed by parents so they can explore the curriculum and become aware of the expectations we have for digital literacy and citizenship for our students.

    I work in a K-2 elementary school. Our students already use so much technology but have not really learned about digital citizenship. This curriculum is great for them because it addresses internet safety and taking responsibility to make good choices for appropriate places to visit while using the internet. We have found it so helpful to compare using the internet to a field trip. First and second grade students really enjoyed visiting many educational places on the internet. The second graders had some in-depth discussions on digital citizenship, the importance of passwords and how everything they do leaves a digital footprint. Our school and district really feels that these skills are integral for students to be prepared when they graduate high school.

    I work with high school students in Informational Technology & Digital Design Classes. Their social and potential professional lives revolve around digital media. I feel compelled to address Copyright education & digital citizenship with my students. One, so they will know what is right and wrong behavior, what is expected from them as digital creators or users, and two, because not many other teachers address the subjects discussed in the curriculum at Common Sense Media. Since my students are in a one-on-one computer lab, I want to help them make good choices when living in a digital world.

    It is important to my school that Digital Citizenship is taught. As a part of our Spartanburg School District 7 technology initiative, each student in grades 3-5 are provided a device to use at school, and at home At my school, Mary H. Wright Elementary, we are lucky, and we are 1:1 in grades 2-5, and have classroom sets to share in grades K-1. Because of the technology we provide, we also feel we are responsible for teaching our students to be responsible Digital Citizens, and the positive ways to use technology to enhance learning. This is why we have adopted and use the Common Sense Media Digital Passport curriculum, as well as promoting Common Sense Media resources to parents, and encourage teachers to use Graphite, the Common Sense Media website, and Digital Passport curriculum during instruction.

    It's very important that students behave responsibly and safely on the internet. Therefore, conducting the Digital Citizenship Lessons provides students the foundation and knowledge they need to navigate safely.

    I wanted to do digital citizenship with my students because it was highly encouraged and supported by our administration to implement this. The other reason was in the past I noticed that we did not have a common understanding of how to use digital technology appropriately or even understand what technology was and the best way to use it. We would create some so called rules about the proper use of going on websites but it was based on the individual classrooms and not school wide. This program creates a common understanding and we can all refer to it. The units are age appropriate. informative and interactive.

    My students have taken some of the lessons from the digitial literacy and citizenship lessons to heart. One fact that seemed to surprise them is the act that once you send a text message or email. It is out there and usually cannot be recovered. This was like an aha moment for them. It revealed how they didnʻt really understand this form of communication. They were struck by the proper way to blog, text so that you can communicate clearly and appropriately. When we created our Edmodo account and got ready to blog, we reviewed some of the “rules” of communication.
