This course relies heavily on the Common Sense Media website which provides rich instructional materials, but will take you beyond in learning how to integrate the materials into your classroom curriculum.

This course in digital citizenship is designed for classroom teachers, school counselors, technology instructors, administrators, and librarians who are interested in learning how to teach young people how to survive and safely navigate the interconnected digital world in which we live. It is divided into three major strands: Safety Security, Connected Culture, and Cyberbullying.

“Digital media and technology are evolving at a dizzying pace, bringing with them extraordinary opportunities as well as real risks for young people. Young people are using the immense power of the Internet and mobile technologies to explore, connect, create, and learn in ways never before imagined. But issues that emerge with this 24/7 “connected culture” – from identity theft, to cyber-bullying, to uncertainty about which information to trust online – are surfacing both in schools and at home.” Common Sense Media
