Digital Citizenship through Common Sense Media
At Avery we are committed to helping our students learn the habits and skills they need to use technology safely and responsibly in school, at home and beyond.
Mrs. Dalton and Mrs. Blakey both use resources from Common Sense Education as they teach students in grades K–2 how to develop healthy media habits and online safety. Lessons for grades 3–5 continue to focus on online safety, recognizing cyberbullying, what is and isn’t okay to share online, and how to find credible sources of information.
