Common Sense Media


MLTI is excited to continue a partnership with Common Sense Media, a national non-profit organization that helps families and educators teach kids how to be safe and smart in today’s media driven world.

We know teaching Digital Citizenship is critical to youth development, improved student achievement, and to successfully growing and improving our state-wide technology initiatives. This partnership offers us an exciting opportunity to engage students to think critically and make responsible choices.

The Common Sense Schools Educators curriculum provides schools free, easy-to-use resources and straight-forward information to help them engage parents and educators in an ongoing dialogue about the importance of digital citizenship. Common Sense takes a balanced approach to media education and Internet safety, and addresses both the challenges and opportunities that digital media creates for kids.

The program consists of lessons and materials organized by grade and topic, and includes resources such as parent tip sheets, surveys, discussion guides and videos.


Register as an educator on the Common Sense Media Website to get this free digital curriculum for your classroom or school.
