Using Common Sense Education resources, Moore Public School administrators, media specialists, counselors, and teachers will help students understand what it means to become a proper digital citizen. Beginning with kindergarten students, our Media Specialists will present two lessons each academic year designed to teach media balance and well-being; privacy and security; relationships and communication; cyberbullying, digital drama, and hate speech; digital footprint and identity; or news and media literacy. These topics each play an important role in our District's focus on Digital Safety, Digital Social Interaction, and Evaluating Digital Information.
Administrators, Media Specialists, 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 30-45 minutes. There are several lessons for each grade level in Common Sense Education's Scope & Sequence. It is required that Media Specialists teach at least one Digital Citizenship lesson per semester -- the list above is required for at least one of the lessons, and Media Specialists may choose the remaining lesson(s) from Common Sense Education's curriculum. We highly encourage multiple lessons to be taught each year, so work with your fellow teachers to plan and collaborate to present digital citizenship units. Please encourage teachers to use resources such as posters and family engagement activities to reinforce digital citizenship principles in the classrooms and at home. As always, model proper digital citizenship in and out of the classroom!
