Continued Support for Expanding Digital Learning in Arkansas

Common Sense Kids Action recognizes that media and technology have become commonplace in all areas of our lives. Students must learn how to safely, ethically, and responsibly use media and technology resources.

Schools can play a critical role by educating, empowering, and engaging children with the best practices around technology use.

Senate Bill 506 would provide continued support for the Digital Learning Task Force, created to identify opportunities to expand digital learning throughout the state. The task force is composed of educators, administrators, researchers, and parents who will work under the oversight of the Arkansas Department of Education with the purpose of developing digital resources and best practices for school districts.

We must provide educators, administrators, and parents with the resources they need to ensure digital citizenship and media-literacy concepts are being taught in classrooms.
