Digital Citizenship

Posted on April 13, 2015 by Lesley Arnold

You’ve probably heard about kids that did something on a device that they shouldn’t have. They didn’t know they weren’t supposed to. Maybe someone bullied someone on the internet, or someone used a friend’s cell phone without permission, or someone used information for a research paper that wasn’t factual or true. A new device can be a daunting adventure. Learn how to use it.
I encourage all students (parents, too!) to give this new online program a try.
“Learn the fundamentals of digital citizenship through animated, choose-your-own-adventure interactive experiences, designed for grades 6-9. Invite students to explore digital dilemmas, make good (and not-so-good) decisions, and try out possible solutions through stories and mini-games – all without risking their real-world reputations. Discover how Common Sense Education’s award-winning digital literacy and citizenship curriculum seamlessly integrates into blended-learning environments. Coming soon in April 2015 as an iOS app, Android app, and web-based app!”
