Common Sense Media


Common Sense Media is dedicated to improving the lives of kids and families by providing the trustworthy information, education, and independent voice they need to thrive in a world of media and technology.

We exist because our nation's children spend more time with media and digital activities than they do with their families or in school, which profoundly impacts their social, emotional, and physical development . As a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization, we provide trustworthy information and tools, as well as an independent forum, so that families can have a choice and a voice about the media they consume.

We offer developmentally age-appropriate, reliable information so you can decide what's best for your family. We also have free educator resources from cyberbullying to plagiarism, our digital literacy programs teach skills, safety, and ethics.

As an Online Teacher and an enthusiastic educator, I am always on the look-out for tools/sites that can help me help the new Cyber generation. When I found Common Sense Media, I was more than happy. It guides parents, students and educators, by providing information about digital content. Thus, looking at the the color-codes and information, parents and educators can decide which content is safe for their children and students. It also offers content on issues, like bullying and plagiarism, that directly relate to the welfare of students. With the increasing exposure to digital content, I strongly feel that all parents and educators should use Common Sense Media, to ensure the safety and well-being of their wards and students.

Common Sense Media is a must bookmark for any educator that works in an environment where students have frequent access to digital content. Hmm.. Now that I have written that, it seems that would mean CSM is a must bookmark for all educators.

Their color coded, age rated reviews of movies, red for caution, green for go, help guide both parents and teachers on what may or may not be appropriate for children and adolescents. Their collection of digital citizenship resources can serve as both guide and curricular content for times when a teacher must address issues like cyberbullying, privacy considerations, and online preadators. These makers really care about mindful media consumption.
