Children and young people today are using the immense power of digital media to explore, connect, create, and learn in ways never before imagined. It is becoming more and more important for teachers to teach digital literacy and citizenship skills and for schools to support their pupils to act responsibly and to use the internet in a better way. Base on the Common Sense Media’s FREE Digital Literacy & Citizenship Curriculum, South West Grid for Learning have produced schemes of learning for all year groups. Teachers can look at every year group – from age 4 to age 16 and access a collection of digital literacy resources and lesson plans for their students which will empower them to think critically, behave safely, and participate responsibly in our digital world. These 21st-century skills are essential for children and young people to harness the full potential of technology for learning.Website offer a comprehensive yet balanced approach in addressing safety and security concerns, including ethics and behaviour issues, as well as digital literacy skills; provide child-centred, media-rich lesson materials that emphasize skill building, critical thinking, ethical discussion, media creation, and decision making; address the whole community by providing materials to educate parents and families about digital citizenship; provide additional resources and links and suggestions for curriculum opportunities. Schools can choose to use the curriculum as a complete package for a year group or key stage, or to choose individual lessons for use across the curriculum.
