Chicago Public Schools has adopted Common Sense Media's Digital Literacy and Citizenship Classroom Curriculum, in compliance with state rules for annual, age-appropriate Internet safety instruction for students in grades 3 to 12. Foundation grantee Common Sense Media developed the free curriculum to help students and school communities to be knowledgeable, safe, and responsible online. Each month, a new curriculum topic will be featured, including digital footprint, identity/self-expression, cyberbullying, and privacy and security. Common Sense Media programs are currently in 17,000 schools across the country.
Digital Media & Learning
MacArthur is exploring how digital media are changing the way young people learn, play, socialize, and participate in civic life. The goal is to make education more powerful for all students by creating more opportunities for more youth to engage in learning that is relevant to their lives and prepares them for success in school, the workplace, and their community.
