Common Sense Media is a nonpartisan nonprofit providing information, tools, and a forum for families about the media they consume. Hewlett Foundation support this year will allow Common Sense Media to further strengthen and expand the Common Sense News, a media platform focused on deep reporting regarding how social policy affects children and families. This includes attention to topics such as early childhood development, education, family care, poverty, and wellness, along with a unique focus on media and tech reporting that has been a hallmark of Common Sense Media across all their work.

for an evaluation of the digital citizenship curriculum
Common Sense Media is dedicated to helping children thrive in a world of media and technology, both in school and at home. Having developed and implemented its new K-12 Digital Literacy and Citizenship Curriculum, Common Sense will now evaluate its effectiveness in schools and districts across the country. This grant supports this important evaluation effort. (Substrategy: Content, Tools and Services)
for analysis of the technology requirements of online testing and their relationship to E-Rate
Common Sense Media (CSM) is a nonpartisan non-profit providing information, tools, and a forum for families about the media they consume. CSM supported a larger effort (called the LEAD Commission) which was charged with developing a blueprint for the expansion of education technology, including a review of the E-Rate. With this funding, CSM would engage a coalition of nonprofits to help promote the LEAD Commission’s recommendations for using technology in schools. The work will focus on meeting the technology demands of online testing and enabling schools to assess students on deeper learning—a key priority of our strategy.
