The digital landscape holds a world of possibilities for students—in education, creativity, communication, and overall empowerment. But there are challenges, too, and it’s up to adults to ensure that kids have the necessary knowledge to safely and effectively navigate the environment.
As an educator, you are uniquely positioned to impart this knowledge. And if you’re ready to take on the challenge, you’ll have an ally.
Common Sense Media is a leading independent nonprofit organization dedicated to helping kids thrive in a world of media and technology. They have pledged to “empower students with the skills they need to think critically, behave safely, and participate responsibly.”
One way they accomplish this is through the creation of K-12 educational resources—which are easily implemented in the classroom, and freely available.
In fact, if you join Common Sense Media in pledging to empower kids, they’ll give you a free Back-to-School Guide to help you get started!
