At Hoover our goal is to give our students all the skills needed to move on to middle school and beyond. Part of that process is to help our students prepare for life in the Digital Age. One way we approach this is to provide Digital Citizenship lessons for each grade level. These lessons are adapted from the Common Sense Media Curriculum and cover topics including exploring the internet safely, balancing media use, cyberbullying, and research.
These lessons come with some fantastic Family Activities to follow up on lessons at home. There are also Resources and Tips for parents who need some help navigating these waters with their students. Below you can find link to these items.
