Facilitator(s): MLTI Integration Mentors

Time: 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Registration Information


This session was originally scheduled February 5, 2014 but was canceled due to a snow storm. The new date is now February 27th.

Young people today are growing up in a digital world that has the potential to enrich their learning. Yet teachers and administrators face daily challenges dealing with behavioral issues that arise from students’ use of technology. Although digital citizenship skills have become essential for students in the 21st century, neither students nor schools have a roadmap to guide them. With the new CIPA/E-Rate education requirements that mandate that all schools receiving E-Rate discounts educate students about Internet safety, it’s even more critical that we have resources to teach students basic Internet safety skills. Attend this session to learn more about Common Sense Media’s free digital citizenship resources and how Common Sense Media is helping to support educators in raising a generation of good digital citizens. You'll leave with ideas and tools you can implement immediately in your school community.
