Common Sense Media today announced a partnership with Edmodo, the free and secure K-12 social learning network. The partnership provides teachers with a set of student activities based on Common Sense Media's free K-12 curriculum, "Digital Literacy and Citizenship in a Connected Culture," for the Edmodo platform. The curriculum introduces the basics of using social networks and other digital technologies safely, responsibly and respectfully and is based on the work of Dr. Howard Gardner and the GoodPlay Project at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

Through Edmodo's free and secure social network, teachers have access to the Digital Citizenship community. The community offers resources designed to spark conversations in virtual and physical classrooms about how to engage safely with technology.

Common Sense Media's educator programs also include comprehensive professional development tools and components for parents.
