Digital Citizenship Curriculum
With access comes responsibility. Digital citizenship becomes even more critical as students gain unlimited access to the internet. Teachers can incorporate Digital Citizenship within their lessons when students use the internet for research and view educational digital content. The site listed below, CommonSense Media, is the K-12 digital citizenship curriculum Gilbert Public Schools has adopted. The site contains lessons, videos, activities, online modules, posters, assessment, etc. available for our teachers to use to promote digital citizenship in and outside the classroom.
