“Digital citizens think critically about what they see online, understand the benefits and risks of sharing information and balance screen time with other activities. But digital citizens aren’t born — they’re taught by teachers like you!” – Common Sense Education
The week of October 14-18 marks National Digital Citizenship Week, a time when we focus intentionally on a topic that many of you discuss with your students every day. Our students will interact with digital media and devices in our schools, as well as in college, careers and daily life. This week is a great opportunity to engage your students, colleagues and families in important dialogue about digital citizenship and perhaps to incorporate a relevant activity or lesson in your classroom.
Common Sense Education is a terrific resource for more information and lessons about digital citizenship, including foundational research, educator webinars, student activities and family tip sheets. Additionally, throughout the year our teacher-librarians are providing self-paced Common Sense Educator certification opportunities that qualify for Technology Professional Development and clock hours.

Have a great Digital Citizenship Week!
