Common Sense Media is a one-stop shop for Digital Citizenship resources to use in your classroom, and a great one to share with families.
Find lesson plans, parent letters, handouts, posters, and videos to help you create a comprehensive dig cit learning experience. Use the online scope and sequence to view lessons by grade band or choose lessons by topics such as digital footprint, cyberbullying, internet safety, creative commons & copyright, and more. Sign up for a free account to get access to the educator resources.
Share the Common Sense Media website with your families as it is an excellent resource to find a game, app, or movie review. Families will appreciate articles geared toward parenting in the digital age. They will find titles such as “Explaining the News to our Kids” and “Step by Step Tips to Set Up Your Kids’ iPhone.”
Common Sense has a program for Educators, Schools, or Districts to get an official stamp of recognition. To find out how to apply to be a Common Sense Educator, visit this link.
