Using Common Sense Education resources, Moore Public School counselors and teachers will help students understand what it means to become a proper digital citizen. Beginning with kindergarten students, we will present lessons each academic year designed to teach Internet safety; privacy and security; relationships and communication; cyberbullying; digital footprint and reputation; self-image and identity; information literacy; and creative credit and copyright. These topics each play an important role in our District's focus on Digital Safety, Digital Social Interaction, and Evaluating Digital Information.
Administrators, Counselors, and Teachers:
Select the appropriate grade level link and make sure you have the materials and resources needed to prepare for the lesson. Each required lesson above is approximately one hour; however, there are five total lessons each unit (year) in Common Sense Education's Scope & Sequence. We highly encourage all five lessons to be taught each year, so work with your fellow teachers to plan and collaborate to present the entire digital citizenship unit (and possibly administer the unit assessment) each year. As always, model proper digital citizenship in and out of the classroom!
Parents & Community:
There is a wealth of information on how you can help promote students to think critically in our digital world. Below you will find links to resources from endorsed organizations and sites that will help students to understand what it means to be a responsible digital citizen outside of school as well.
