About the Presentation:
Young people are using the immense power of the Internet and other technologies to create, connect, explore, and learn in ways never before imagined. However, behavioral and ethical issues brought up by a constantly connected culture–from cyberbullying to plagiarism to privacy–are surfacing in schools, homes, and communities across the United States. Young people face ethical challenges and opportunities daily, and the answers are often not black and white. In this presentation, participants will learn about Common Sense Media’s free educational program on digital literacy and citizenship that connects schools, families, and students in a whole-community approach. Common Sense Media has 10,000 school affiliates in 57 countries across the globe. Participants will be introduced to a framework and resources for teaching digital citizenship, grounded in research from Professor Howard Gardner and the GoodPlay Project at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. This session presents a digital citizenship framework and program for K-8 students to address the challenges that administrators, instructors, and parents face regarding the possibilities and perils of kids connecting online.
