Digital media and technology hold great promise for enhancing learning and simplifying our lives. However, despite all its potential benefits, the current landscape of digital media has also given rise to a wide range of complicated and potentially pernicious challenges. Today, educators across the country are tasked with helping students navigate novel issues such as fake news, online hate speech, cyberbullying, digital addiction, privacy, among others. In such a complex landscape, how can educators teach students to avoid the risks and harness the rewards of digital media and technology?
Over the past 10 years, Common Sense Education has provided research-based Digital Citizenship Curriculum at no cost to schools. In this presentation, Common Sense Education will share an overview of the pedagogical approaches, strategies, and resources we offer to teach digital citizenship to students in middle and high school. Participants will gain an understanding of the core digital citizenship dispositions guiding the Common Sense curriculum. This set of five dispositions will give educators a framework that will guide them in addressing the digital dilemmas that young people encounter in their everyday lives. Attendees will leave with actionable, ready-to-use activities that are relevant for a variety of settings.
