Digital Citizenship Certification Renewed for Two Schools

Digital Citizenship Certification Renewed for Two Schools

Two Cherokee County School District schools have earned the renewal of national certification for excellence in teaching digital citizenship!

The national nonprofit organization Common Sense awarded both Clayton Elementary and Woodstock Elementary Schools re-certification in recognition of their efforts to teach digital citizenship, including responsible technology use and critical thinking skills, and for engaging the entire school community in the initiative.

Media specialists Sandy McPherson of Clayton ES and Amy VanFossen of Woodstock ES worked to achieve their schools’ re-certification.  Both use Common Sense resources as part of lessons on digital citizenship topics including internet safety, protecting personal privacy and online reputation, avoiding cyberbullying, managing online relationships, media literacy and balance and understanding plagiarism. 

“The faculty and staff of these schools deserve high praise for giving students the foundational skills they need to compete and succeed in the 21st-century workplace and participate ethically in society at large,” said Kelly Mendoza, vice president of education programs at Common Sense Education.  “We applaud them for embracing digital citizenship as an important part of their students’ education.”
