Digital Citizenship

  • What is digital citizenship, anyways?

    Any member of a society should strive to be an appropriate and responsible citizen.  This same concept applies to the digital world.  SPS is dedicated to helping our students, staff and parents achieve this goal together.  One of the ways SPS approaches teaching digital citizenship is to utilize a framework that is dedicated to promoting Digital Citizenship.

    Common  Sense Media is a website that SPS uses with the intent of spreading the idea of positive cyber skills.   A quote from their website: Common Sense Education supports K–12 schools with everything educators need to empower the next generation of digital citizens. Our innovative, award-winning Digital Citizenship Curriculum prepares students with lifelong habits and skills, supports teachers with training and recognition, and engages families and communities with helpful tips and tools. ​Schools everywhere rely on our free curriculum, expert advice, and edtech ratings to help kids thrive. Our vision: Students thriving as learners, leaders, and citizens in the digital age.
