Common Sense?

Teaching kids and even one another how to appropriately communicate and act in an online setting is so important as we move into our future. It seems like common sense, but is it really? We have heard so many horror stories lately in the news about teacher student relationships, I think taking a step back and looking at the bigger picture is important for everyone, not just educators. Let’s start with our students. Giving them the tools and the language to be in any online environment, even when an adult isn’t looking over their shoulder, is one of our biggest tasks. If you are interested in teaching more about digital citizenship and integrating it into your class routine, check out the K-12 resources (lessons, videos, and activities) from Common Sense Media. If it isn’t common sense now, let’s be the catalyst for change. Feel free to leave a comment on how you used it in your classroom!
