Fall CUE Speaker Showcase: Kelly Mendoza

Picture Kelly Mendoza

In this age of information overload, as a teacher, I often find it overwhelming trying to educate my students on what is worthy of using in the classroom. What is real? What is fake? How can we teach those critical thinking skills? Kelly Mendoza is tackling this problem head on. Check out her session at Fall CUE. 

Kelly oversees education programming and content strategy for Common Sense Education, including digital citizenship curriculum, interactive games, and online professional development for K-12 schools. Her goal is to develop research-based curricula and programs that help schools create a positive learning culture around media and technology.
