BHS partners with Common Sense Media to provide digital citizenship training…
Did you know that the average student spends over 50 hours a week in front of a digital screen of some type? Whether they are surfing the net for personal interests such as social media or searching for information pertaining to school research assignments, our students are impacted daily by media and technology. Fulton County Schools recognizes that the media content consumed and created by our students has a profound impact on how they feel, think, behave, learn and grow. As part of its personalized learning initiative, FCS has mandated that each of its schools become certified in digital citizenship. In keeping with that initiative, BHS has partnered with Common Sense Media to provide digital citizenship training to teachers, students, and parents of our school community to ensure that we are all developing and exhibiting good habits when using tech devices and consuming media content.
Common Sense is the leading independent nonprofit organization dedicated to helping individuals and families make smart choices in media usage by providing unbiased information, trusted advice, and innovative tools to help us harness the power of media and technology as a positive force in all our lives.
