An Introduction to Implementing Common Sense Education Digital Citizenship in UK Schools

Thursday, February 25, 2021 - 8:00-9:00 am PST

Learners need digital citizenship skills to participate fully in their communities and make smart choices online and in life. Teachers need resources to keep up with today’s fast-changing media and technology landscape. Common Sense Education has a free Digital Citizenship Curriculum that offers a whole-community approach to media balance and well-being. The resources support teachers and prepare learners to think critically and use technology responsibly to learn, create and participate in the digital world. The curriculum is guided by the research of Project Zero at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and addresses current issues students face, including cyberbullying, online privacy, hate speech, news literacy, and more. The resources include real-life scenarios, new videos, and engaging activities that help students explore complex topics.

Join Katy Potts from Islington Council, Dan Ferry from Islington Schools, and Pip Bhol from King’s Cross Academy, in this edWebinar to learn about how this curriculum is being adopted by schools in the UK. The presenters will share best practices and implementation ideas including how the Islington School teams have mapped UK Educated in a Connected World and key resources to Common Sense Media.
