With the mass increase of technology use in classrooms, a new problem has arised. Digital Citizenship.....do students know how to use the technology correctly, appropriately, safely? The answer is, "No." Most teachers are now in search of lessons plans and programs they can use to create Digital Citizens. Luckily, Common Sense Media has created a useful site with an assortment of tools that teachers, parents, and students can access for free. For more information, please click below.
