This year, Bear Creek has embraced digital citizenship as an important part of educating today’s students. Bear Creek has been using Common Sense Education’s research based digital-citizenship and literacy resources, created in collaboration with Dr. Howard Gardner of the GoodPlay Project at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. The resources teach students, educators, and parents tangible skills related to Internet safety, protecting online reputations and personal privacy, managing online relationships, and respecting creative copyright.
Our school believes that preparing students to use technology safely and responsibly is an essential as we leverage educational technology to personalize learning and boost student engagement. Bear Creek is currently in the application phase of becoming a Common Sense Digital Citizenship: Certified School.
