Digital Citizenship

As we are educating 21st Century learners and technology is more prevalent than ever, it is important that our students become positive and responsible digital citizens.

Here at Madonna Catholic School, students will be introduced to important topics that all surround digital citizenship using common sense media. Common Sense Media brings a child-friendly approach to discussing important topics regarding responsible technology use.


Students in kindergarten and grade 1 will be exposed to lessons on the topics of media balance & well-being and privacy & security. They will build on these lessons as they move on to older grades.


Students from grade 2-4 will be learning about the following topics:

  • Media balance & well-being

  • Privacy & security

  • Digital Footprint & Identity

  • Relationships and Communication
