Digital Citizenship Pre-Built Lessons
Rating

Common Sense Education offers free pre-built lessons for K-12 surrounding digital citizenship and staying safe online. Their lessons include a teacher's guide, lesson slides, activities with answer keys, videos, and songs for younger grades to help deliver the lesson. Teachers do need to create an account in order to access the lessons but it is free and you have total access once you sign up. I personally use this in connection with my Media Studies course and love the lessons that they offer. Super simple, and relevant to the students and their interactions online. They also offer a tips sheet and a parent connection sheet for each of their small themed units.

Digital Driver's Licence
Rating

The Digital Licence is an interactive resource that challenges young people to examine their interactions online and to think more critically. Referencing current trends and applications, the resource helps students and educators on their path toward informed digital citizenship.

It features about eight scenarios, tailored by age level, that cover topics including what constitutes copyright violation and how to stay safe online. Each student registers individually and then progresses through background material related to a given scenario, which might include a video or examining a given situation. When a student feels confident she has mastered a topic, she can take a "prove it" quiz that puts her knowledge to the test. A passing score is 80 percent or greater. Scores, answer resets and attempts are logged for educators, who can follow each student's progress in an admin toolbar. Educators can further specify which scenarios will be required to earn a DDL.

At Sun West you can log into this using your Sun West Office 365 credentials.

My Social Media Life Lesson from Common Sense Education
Rating

This lesson should take about 45 minutes.

"For most middle-schoolers, being on social media can mean connecting with friends, sharing pictures, and keeping up to date. But it can also mean big-time distractions, social pressures, and more. Help students navigate the different feelings they may already be experiencing on social media.

Students will be able to:
*Identify the role of social media in students' lives.
*Reflect on the positive and negative effects of using social media on their relationships.
*Recognize "red flag feelings" when using social media, and consider ways to handle them."

Lesson slides, video, handouts, quiz, family engagement activities & family tips.

You will need to sign up for a FREE account to access all of the resources.
