Last week was Digital Citizenship Week and we want to focus on some of the wonderful resources available for you to teach your students about Digital Citizenship from Common Sense Media.
Common Sense Media offers three interactive games for students in grades 3-12.
Common Sense Digital Passport is an interactive quest for students in grades 3-5. Students can earn a Digital Passport by completing three rounds of gameplay in all five modules. Each module is aligned to Common Core and National Education for Technology Standards for Students (ISTE's NETS). Digital Passport is free to play and available as free app for Apple and Android devices.
Common Sense Digital Compass tests students in grades 6-8 on a series of adventures based on real life stories. Each story takes about forty-five minutes for students to complete and has fifty different combinations of outcomes. Each story is aligned to Common Core and National Education for Technology Standards for Students (ISTE's NETS).
Common Sense Digital Bytes teaches teens digital citizenship through student directed activities based on their interests. Their are eight Bytes available for students to complete and each activity takes about two hours. Each Byte is aligned to Common Core and National Education for Technology Standards for Students (ISTE's NETS).
You can help track your students progress in all three games and instructional units by issuing Digital Citizenship Badges. You can download all badges for units in a grade band or by game.
We hope you explore these amazing resources with your students!
