for revision of its award-winning K-12 Digital Citizenship curriculum  
Common Sense Media is the nation’s leading nonprofit dedicated to helping children thrive in a world of media and technology, both in school and at home. Common Sense is undertaking a significant revision of its award-winning K-12 Digital Citizenship curriculum to best meet the ever-evolving needs of students, parents, educators, and schools/school districts. This R&D program advances the foundation’s interest in promoting high-quality, standards-aligned OER that develops deeper into learning competencies for personal, social, and civic success in the digital age. The goal is to offer the most innovative resources possible to support students in the midst of new and sometimes pernicious issues – hate speech, fake news, and privacy concerns.
