Digital Citizenship Homepage

Navigating cyberbullying, privacy, safety, and other digital dilemmas are a real challenge for schools. But technology also provides incredible opportunities for students to learn, connect, create, and collaborate in ways never before imagined. Your school can build a positive school culture that supports the safe and responsible use of technology with Common Sense Education's K-12 Digital Citizenship Curriculum. Students can build skills around critical thinking, ethical discussion, and decision making.  Common Sense Media Digital Citizenship curriculum includes comprehensive resources for students, like lesson plans, student digital interactives, and assessments, as well as professional development for teachers and materials for family education.

South Washington County schools started using Common Sense Media Digital Citizenship Curriculum in 2014-15. There are 5 lessons for each grade level and each lessons will take approximately 45 minutes to complete. Every student is required to receive this instruction during the first trimester of the school year and completion is recorded in Infinite Campus. Teachers and administrators are required to complete the verification documentation that should be retained annually.  Each school will utilize the planning tool to support the implementation of the Common Sense Media Digital Citizenship Curriculum and will review and refine this work every spring.
