Teaching cyber safety / digital citizenship / respectful & safe online behaviour is a non negotiable in any primary school classroom. It’s made even better & easier if you have a whole curriculum of brand new, 100% free, resources from which you can draw upon.
So teachers, let us introduce the brand spanking new (released in just the last few months) digital citizenship curriculum from the good folk at Common Sense Media. Here’s what we love about the new curriculum and why it should be bookmarked by every teacher:

Lessons tailored for Grades F-6
Clear learning intentions for each lesson
All resources supplied- videos, handouts & Google Slides (easily customisable if you like)
Includes activities to send home and engage parents and families
Current and relevant new topics including finding credible news online, de-escalating online drama, deciphering gender stereotypes & so much more!
Lessons are organised into 6 key ideas and easily filtered by year level.
