Back to School Checklist for Positive Media and Tech Use
August 8 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Back to school is the most wonderful time of the year! Educators are busy planning class goals for the year, setting norms and expectations for classroom device use, and supporting families with at-home tips and conversation starters.
In this edWebinar, Sue Thotz and Jennifer Ehehalt from Common Sense Education will highlight what’s new from Common Sense. They will also share templates and routines to help you establish a positive culture of digital citizenship in your classroom now and throughout the school year.
This edWebinar will be of interest to elementary and middle school teachers and education technology leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
