Information technology holds great promise for transforming education — the use of digital devices, courseware, apps, games, and websites in the classroom has significant potential for personalized learning, new and innovative activities, and enhanced home-school connections. But with this power come behavioral and ethical issues, both in schools and at home: privacy violations, hate speech, new permutations of cyberbullying, fake news, digital addiction, FOMO (“fear of missing out”), rising anxiety levels, and mental health issues. In 2019, Common Sense updated its K–12 Digital Citizenship Curriculum — co-developed with the Project Zero team at the Harvard Graduate School of Education — to help educators address the digital dilemmas students are facing today. Linda Burch will share some key components of the curriculum to help educators teach digital citizenship as a means to promote healthy tech use.
