"I've realized more and more that my students need clearly stated digital citizenship instruction. Relying on informal instruction throughout the course of the year just isn't enough to bring these important concepts home for them. Common Sense Education's lessons are so well-structured that I have come to rely on them the past couple of years to help make digital citizenship a focus at the beginning of each year. Becoming a Common Sense Certified Educator is a great program to solidify our commitment as educators to teaching students to be caring, mindful, responsible digital citizens who keep themselves and their information safe online."
Karisa Bibayoff, Common Sense Certified Educator: Digital Citizenship, Natomas Charter School, Calif.

Please note: Our goal at Common Sense Education is to give educators and students the digital learning tools they need to harness the power of technology for learning and life. This includes providing both digital citizenship and digital learning resources. To that end, we are making some exciting changes to the Common Sense Certification Program to include all educators committed to creating a culture of digital learning and citizenship.
