For today’s Tech Tip, I’m highlighting the information and resources available at Common Sense Media! This website has provided me with valuable tools throughout my teaching career. I have used lessons from their digital citizenship curriculum with my 9th-12th grade students to discuss online safety, digital footprints, and plagiarism. I have also used the website to check on recommendations for edtech tools. However, until recently, I was unaware that Common Sense Media provides a lot of information for parents as well.
Common Sense Media presents resources for Parents, Educators, and Advocates.
This part of the Common Sense Media website provides parents and educators with ways to get involved and advocate for children. Common Sense Kids Action is passionate about four issues: high-quality early childhood, 21st-century schools, encouraging a positive media and technology world, and providing common sense support for families. Common Sense Kids Action drives public policy at the state and national level in these four areas.
