Creating Access to Digital Citizenship and Media-Literacy Education
Kids have never had as much access to the internet and mobile technologies at home and at school as they do today. While media and technology have great promise for learning, young people need support and education to learn how to make sound judgments when navigating the digital world.
In 2017, 11 states introduced legislation that would expand access to digital citizenship and media-literacy resources. Common Sense Kids Action is happy to release a policy paper, developed with partner organizations NAMLE, Media Literacy Now, and SETDA, that provides a background on the issues, as well as key legislative definitions in the policy area.
