Commit to Digital Citizenship Oct. 15–19, 2018 for Digital Citizenship Week!

Digital Citizenship Week
Give students and communities a foundation for addressing these critical topics, both in and out of the classroom.

Internet safety, cyberbullying, online relationships, digital footprints, online privacy, news and media literacy — these days, in our 24/7 digital world, the tech skills kids need to thrive are so much more complicated than they were in the past. And teachers everywhere — in every content area and on every grade level — are now addressing digital citizenship in ways that reflect these complexities and help kids be safe, responsible, and productive online.

Common Sense Education advocates for a whole-community approach to digital citizenship. This approach engages not only students and teachers in the conversation but also families and the wider community as well. Common Sense Education’s K–12 Digital Citizenship Curriculum and family engagement resources give schools and communities a foundation for addressing these critical topics, both in and out of the classroom.

This year, for Digital Citizenship Week (Oct. 15–19, 2018), we’re calling on all educators, families, and community members to raise awareness about the importance of these essential skills. Whether your community is just getting started with digital citizenship, looking for resources to share with teachers or parents, or even ready to initiate an entire school- or district-wide program, Common Sense Education has the resources you need.

Even though it seems like kids can master a new device in minutes flat, they still need our guidance when it comes to navigating the complex and challenging digital world before them. Join Common Sense Education for Digital Citizenship Week, and help empower the next generation to think critically and use technology responsibly to learn, create, and participate.
