Eighteen teachers completed the second OSD cohort to earn Common Sense Educator certification by learning about and integrating elements of digital citizenship in their classrooms. The certification process includes readings and webinars, developing curriculum and other resources, and applying approaches in the classroom or family engagement events, followed by a written reflection on the process.
The objectives of the certification program include:
- Learn approaches to help students think critically and use technology responsibly
- Develop resources and teach lessons about digital citizenship
- Reflect on professional growth in the area of digital citizenship and media literacy
Common Sense Media is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to helping kids thrive in a digital world and to supporting families and educators as they harness the power of media and technology to be a positive force in all kids’ lives. Common Sense Media provides a digital citizenship and media literacy curriculum that is widely used in schools, including the OSD library media programs and classrooms.
A new cohort will launch in the fall. For more information and to enroll, go to pdEnroller event #88043
