Parents' Top Back to School Tech Questions

10 of 11

Should schools teach responsible online behavior?

Common Sense Media's Digital Citizenship program provides schools with lessons on everything from cell phones to cyberbullying.

Question: Technology is a big part of school. I wish that the teachers also taught appropriate rules of behavior about how to treat others online. Where can I (and they) get that information?

Answer: You've come to the right place. Our free Digital Literacy and Citizenship Curriculum is available for teachers of grades K-12. With lessons on everything from cell phones to cyberbullying, it teaches students to make safe, smart, and ethical decisions. Definitely tell your teacher about it.

We also have a program for families to help parents and caregivers navigate the digital world. These are turnkey resources like videos, tip sheets, and even back-to-school night promotion materials. It's truly everything you need to help your community raise responsible, respectful digital citizens. —Caroline Knorr, Common Sense Media (Photo: iStock)
