Audrey Stokes | June 28, 2011

We are pleased to announce that we officially launched our 9-12 Digital Literacy and Citizenship Curriculum!

This program empowers students to think critically and make informed choices about how they live and treat others in today’s digital media world. The curriculum, which was co-created by the team of Dr. Howard Gardner and the GoodPlay Project at Harvard Graduate School of Education, covers topics from internet safety and security to privacy and cyberbullying  and uses engaging content to inspire kids to be responsible digital citizens.

“A quality digital literacy and citizenship education for all kids is an essential foundation of a 21st century workforce and society,” said Linda Burch, chief education and strategy officer, Common Sense Media.
