Common Sense Interactive Digital Citizenship Games
Digital Passport (grades 3-5) is an interactive learning tool that teaches the basics of digital safety, etiquette, and citizenship. Students learn foundational skills from online games and videos while deepening their learning through additional wraparound content.
Digital Compass (grades 6-8) is an innovative way to give students age 11–14 the freedom to explore how decisions made in their digital lives can affect them. Through the popular choose-your-own-path format, students play through the perspective of one of eight characters, each of whom is facing a different digital citizenship dilemma. The varied story paths and multiple decision points encourage students to play repeatedly in order to explore alternative courses of action.
