Expanding Digital Citizenship and Media Literacy Training in Washington
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 5449 would allow the State Office of Public Instruction to survey educators with the goal of collecting best practices and create a digital repository of digital citizenship and media-literacy resources for educators and administrators.
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 Senate Bill 5449 today!
