It is known that kids spend an average of 53 hours a week using media and technology, equating to over 7 hours a day, and this doesn’t include time spent texting or doing school work. Though technology offers kids great opportunities for self-exploration, creativity, connection and learning, young students may also experience challenges such as oversharing information and cyberbullying.
For these reasons we are committed to teaching our students how to think critically, behave safely, and participate responsibly. This recognition is provided by Common Sense Media, a nonprofit American organization dedicated to improving kids’ media lives. It is a privilege and an honour to be recognized by Common Sense Media and we look forward to integrating this resource into our digital citizenship learning.
