When it comes to raising healthy, happy, and successful kids, the saying goes that it takes a village. In serving our mission to help parents, kids, and teachers thrive with media and technology, Common Sense Media also relies on the support of important partners to get our free resources where they're needed most.
Just as we pulled together our top picks for creating a strong home-school connection in time for back to school, Time Warner Cable has created a dedicated campaign using our resources called Back-to-School Essentials especially for their customers. In addition to links to our tip sheets and videos, there's a blog by our smart and savvy Senior Manager of Digital Learning Darri Stephens, who shares what parents can do to stay connected to the online learning their kids are doing at home and at school.
A former elementary school teacher, Darri is part of the team behind the most important elements of our Digital Literacy and Citizenship curriculum (now used by more than 108,000 teachers nationwide!) Check out her advice on how to help your kids manage their classroom technology, whether it's a tablet, computer, or smart phone, so you can keep up with what and how your kids are learning in the classroom and beyond.
