Common Sense Media is a great resource for families, educators and kids who find themselves in the digital world. Their website provides fantastic resources for parents of children who are growing up in a digital age. The site features comprehensive reviews and ratings on apps, TV shows, movies, games, books, websites, and more. Their parent blog addresses a wide variety of issues facing families and offers practical advice on how to raise digitally responsible children. We use their Scope & Sequence on Digital Literacy Lessons in both the MS and US.
We recently found their Family Tip Sheet Common Sense on Digital Life for Middle School and High School. It’s a great resource to start a conversation with kids about technology and their life in the digital world. View the Tip Sheet here (or see below), and check out Common Sense Media for great information on helping your child thrive in the digital world.
