Woodstock ES Earns Digital Citizenship Recognition

Woodstock Elementary School has been honored with a national digital citizenship recognition.

The school has earned Common Sense School certification from the national nonprofit organization Common Sense.  Schools earn this designation by demonstrating their commitment to preparing students to think critically and use technology responsibly to learn, create, and participate, while also preparing them for the perils that exist in the online realm, such as loss of privacy, cyberbullying and plagiarism. 

“By preparing our students to use technology safely and responsibly, we are providing them an opportunity to build lifelong habits to help them succeed in a tech-driven world,” Principal Ann Jordan said. “We’re honored to be recognized as a Common Sense School.”

Woodstock ES uses Common Sense Education’s research-based digital citizenship resources to teach students skills related to internet safety, protecting online reputations and personal privacy, media balance, managing online relationships, and media literacy.  The school’s media specialist is Amy VanFossen.

“Woodstock Elementary School deserves high praise for giving its 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 the faculty and staff of Woodstock Elementary School for embracing digital citizenship as an important part of their students’ education.”
