Recognized for Digital Citizenship

Meadow Drive School has become the second school in the district to be recognized as a Common Sense Certified School for Digital Citizenship. Common Sense is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to helping kids and families thrive in a world of digital media and technology. Meadow Drive was chosen for its commitment to taking a whole-community approach to preparing its students to use the immense power of digital media to explore, create, connect, and learn, while limiting the perils that exist in the online realm, such as plagiarism, loss of privacy, and cyber bullying.

Meadow has been using Common Sense Education's innovative and research-based digital citizenship resources, which were created in collaboration with Dr. Howard Gardner of the GoodPlay Project at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. The resources teach students, educators, and parents tangible skills related to Internet safety, protecting online reputations and personal privacy, managing online relationships, and respecting creative copyright.

Jackson Avenue School received this same distinction last year.
