Digital Citizenship

  • Common Sense Media/Education provides lessons and ideas on how to prepare students to be safe and productive while using technology.  Technology can be an amazing thing but it can also be scary.  Educators help students to understand what is safe to post online, how their information will forever be online, how to interact with people digitally, avoiding cyberbullying, how to locate information and use that information in a legal way.

    Parents can also access information and look at reviews of what their child is using online.
