Looking for new and engaging digital citizenship resources? Common Sense Education has an all-new Digital Citizenship Curriculum free to all schools. The revamped curriculum helps prepare this generation of young learners to critically develop the skills and habits of mind as they face dilemmas in the digital world. The curriculum is guided by the research of Project Zero at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and addresses current issues students face, including cyberbullying, online privacy, hate speech, news literacy, and more. The new lessons include real-life scenarios, new videos, and engaging activities that help students explore complex topics. Take-home advice and activities are provided for parents.
In this edWebinar, attendees will:
- Learn about the six topics covered in the new Digital Citizenship Curriculum
- Define ways to teach digital citizenship, including developing skills and dispositions in students
- Be introduced to activities and resources they can use with students
- Identify ways to implement digital citizenship into their classrooms, schools, or districts
This edWebinar will be of particular benefit to K-12 teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders. There will be time to get your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
