Teaching Digital Citizenship: Digital Media and Your Brain

How does digital media try to hook you, and what can you do about it? Watch a digital citizenship lesson in action! See how Shane Wells, eighth grade social studies and AVID teacher at Mira Loma Middle School in California's Jurupa Unified School District, teaches the "Digital Media and Your Brain" lesson from Common Sense Education. See how students explore how addictive design can make them feel "addicted" to their phones, apps, and games. Students identify ways digital tools can be designed differently, using humane design, to add meaning and value to our lives.
