Common Sense Media 2014 GameOn

Thanks to everyone for joining us on September 21 at our 3rd GameOn! and for helping make the event a big success! Over 350 guests enjoyed the fun and creative side of technology while tasting great food, making art and music and playing sports. With your generous support, we raised vital funds to support our Los Angeles education programs which provide free media and technology resources to over 2000 local educators. We would also especially like to thank our leading event sponsors, Skylander's Trap Team and the Wasserman Foundation.

Highlights also included mingling with Disney Channel stars from popular shows such as Girl Meets World and Jessie (see this video for more). The social media world was abuzz with activity -- see all the tweets from GameOn here. See all the Instagram shots here.

Since the opening of Common Sense Media's regional office in 2011, we have broadly introduced our suite of free K–12 Digital Literacy and Citizenship Education Programs to more than 2,000 independent and public L.A. schools, afterschool programs, and youth-serving organizations such as LAUSD, Alliance Blast schools, L.A.'s Best, and more. Educators need support on a wide variety of topics, ranging from how to improve student learning and ignite creativity through technology to how to build students' digital-citizenship skills.

If you're a fan of our free ratings or our free educational curriculum, we hope you'll support us in growing our local presence!

"A fantastic event that brings families together around quality media, which is a core part of Common Sense's mission."
