Sorry, I know this is similar post to the one in the parent column, but this one is aimed at schools....http://www.commonsensemedia.org/educators/curriculum
Common Sense Media offers this FREE Digital Literacy and Citizenship Curriculum to help educators empower their students and their school communities to be safe, responsible, and savvy as they navigate this fast-paced digital world.
NO COST to your school. It's all free thanks to generous support from our philanthropic supporters.
Research-based learning. We created the lessons with the support of leading researchers from around the country.
Video-rich and real-world. Students engage quickly and stay plugged in because you're using kid-tested media resources to teach the new media.
Total teaching flexibility. Integrate the modular lessons with any subject in any order. Online and print materials let you teach in any classroom and send lessons home to engage parents.
Compliant and aligned. The curriculum helps you comply with E-Rate's education requirement, and it's aligned to ISTE, AALS, and ELA standards.
Currently available for grades K-12.
Now, how many schools, libraries are using this resource? How many parents are? If the world's information is doubling every two years - that's GLOBAL digital information, folks - shouldn't we be taking note of global digital literacy and citizenship???
