This week 5th grade students started using Common Sense Media's new Internet Safety program called Digital Passport. Digital passport is a web-based program designed to teach students about digital citizenship, with topics including online safety and security, privacy, cyberbullying, copyright and creation, and finding information online. The program uses videos, games, and classroom activities and discussions to prepare students for using online and mobile technologies. It's a perfect introduction to the topics that we will discuss more in depth next year as a part of the 6th grade technology curriculum.
