Last night I received an email to inform me that my application to become a Common Sense Digital Citizenship Certified Educator was successful.
I discovered Common Sense Media a few years ago. Prior to that I had used a few different resources, but felt that my approach to digital citizenship was disjointed.
Common Sense Media presented a complete, and FREE, approach, which started with middle school and now incorporates Kinder and Primary as well as High School. The curriculum has also progressed to cover the following topics:
Privacy & Security
Relationships & Communication
Digital Footprint & Reputation
Self Identity & Image
Creative Credit & Copyright
The Certified Educator program is aimed as an addition to the curriculum, to celebrate the educators that embracing technology safely and responsibly in their classrooms.
