Common Sense Media & Digital Citizenship

by Ross Cooper on September 7, 2016

logo_common_sense_mediaCommon Sense Media is a San Francisco based non-profit organization that provides education and advocacy to families to promote safe technology and media for children.

This year, the Salisbury Township School District will be rolling out the Common Sense Media – Scope & Sequence: Common Sense K-12 Digital Citizenship Curriculum with at least five lessons taught per grade level. In upcoming years, we will explore how we can improve and expand upon this curriculum to even better meet the needs of our students. We understand the impact social media has on all of our lives, and we want to be able to guarantee we are educating our students in this area!

Click here for the Parent Concerns section of the website, which contains four short 30-second videos (among other resources). These videos can be used to spark discussion regarding the obstacles parents may face in raising children in a technology-rich world.

While watching the videos, think about the following questions: How can you relate to the parents in the videos? How do we/can we ensure our children/students are using their devices and the Internet in a safe manner?

The Parent Concerns section also contains pages and resources related to such topics as: Technology Addiction; Cyberbullying, Haters, and Trolls; Privacy and Internet Safety; and, Cell Phone Parenting.

If you have any questions, thoughts, or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us!
