Students are spending more and more time on devices, both and out of school. With tablets in the classroom becoming more common and even more readily available at home, do our littles know exactly what they should and shouldn’t do? Are they prepared to interact in the digital world safely within their school, home, community, and world?

With Common Sense’s News and Media Literacy lessons, prepare your most impressionable learners to take on the digital world safely, confidently, and with the tools they need to make informed decisions for our future.
