Common Sense Media is a non-profit organization based on of San Francisco, CA. Their aim is to provide education and advocacy to families to promote safe technology and media for children. Originally, Common Sense Media would review books, movies, TV shows, video games, websites, etc. and rate them in terms of education content, positive messages/role models, violence, and profanity, which, in turn, helped parents make media choices for their kids. While they still offer that service to parents, Common Sense also publishes many educational resources.
One of the products that Common Sense has promoted for school use is a K-12 Digital Literacy and Citizenship Curriculum. This curriculum offers lesson plans, student handouts, videos, and interactive components that span three topic areas: Safety and Security, Digital Citizenship, and Research and Information Literacy.
Other features available through this organization include:
- Digital Passport - Online Curriculum designed to teach children how to safely and responsibly navigate the internet.
- Graphite - An online resource for teachers that allows them to review and rate educational technology.
- Family Guides - Comprehensive guides that aid parents while the students are home.
