House Bill 3556 would create a state-based advisory committee composed of educators, administrators, researchers, and parents who will work under the oversight of the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education with the purpose of developing digital citizenship and media literacy resources and best practices for school districts. School districts would also be required to annually review their policies and procedures on digital citizenship and media literacy.
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.
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. Support House Bill 3556 today!
