Digital Citizenship Week - Day 2

Sometimes you need a tool as a refresher or as a way for students to independently walk through some short lessons on Digital Citizenship.  Thankfully, Common Sense Media also has some wonderful programs for this very purpose.  My favorite one is Digital Passport, which is a self-paced, 5 "mission" activity that allows 3rd-5th graders the opportunity to explore topics like:

  • Multi-tasking
  • What to share and what not to share
  • Cyberbullying
  • Copyright
  • Search
Check out this great video from Common Sense.

During these missions, students watch a video and play a game as they go through the activity.  If you can have a conversation about the videos and topic as you go along, that enhances the impact of the activity even more.

If you are looking for activities for older students, check out the following activities:
