Common Sense Media’s Digital Passport

From eSchool News, 12/21/12, Common Sense Media has released Digital Passport, a free, web-based tool to help educators prepare students from grades 3 to 5 to use online and mobile technologies. Based on lessons from Common Sense Media’s K-12 Digital Literacy and Citizenship Curriculum, the tool addresses issues kids face online — safety and security, cyber bullying, privacy, responsible cell phone use, and respecting creative work — and leverages a blended-learning model of classroom instruction with online videos and games extensively tested in implementation sites in seven regions across the country. Additionally, Digital Passport’s modules align to the ISTE NETS standards and Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts. Public schools in Chicago, Denver, New York City, and Omaha, as well as schools in Maine and California, have committed to using Digital Passport this academic year.
