New! Digital Citizenship Song and Video

New! Digital Citizenship Song and Video | Education Matters - (tech and non-tech) |

"Something you may not know about us here at Common Sense Media, is that quite a few of us are former classroom teachers! When we develop new materials, we always have our favorite memories to guide us. One thing we remember fondly is being amazed by how music transformed a classroom – kids would jump to their feet, whatever the song, to sing and sway while the teacher subtly wove word play and pattern recognition into the mix."

Here is a new resource to help teach elementary students about digital citizenship. Thanks to Common Sense Media for putting together a song and video with lyrics that teach students that they should "Pause and Think" before they go online. The website states that this song "stresses the connection of safe, respectful, and responsible behavior online and offline."

The website provides a the song (downloadable or viewable on YouTube) as well as a file that includes posters that you may post and has each lyric.

Common Sense Media also has a poster about digital citizenship for elementary school students. This poster "illustrates how kids can use their heads, hearts, guts, arms, and legs to be a good digital citizen" as does the song.

Young children love to sing and need to learn about digital citizenship. Take a few minutes to check out these resources and share with others whom teach the younger grades. You may hear a new song in your school!

The Borgeson Bunch - Classroom Website | Education Matters - (tech and non-tech) |

This is a shameless plug for my own classroom website. I have worked for the past year and a half to develop a comprehensive website that is useful to teachers, parents, and students. This is where I am putting a large number of my posts to practical use. I wanted to try out the website, Pictochart, and so I made the infographic that you are seeing.
