Digital Common Sense
Eastport-South Manor Central School District was inspired to become a Common Sense Digitally Certified School District because our students were using digital devices and social networking with very little guidance on how to be safe, responsible and respectful citizens. We saw a lack of transfer from real life situations into the digital community. We wanted to diminish the existence of cyber-bullying. We also wanted students to use digital information ethically by taking pride in their own original content and properly citing sources and giving credit to original creators.
