RESEARCH REPORT

Digital Citizenship
in the Classroom

related to educational technology are
examined, especially in the context of
teachers' technology-related concerns.
Key Findings

After reviewing the survey data,
researchers created a list of findings.
The following is a sampling of 11 key
conclusions:

Survey Topic Areas

New technologies are being rolled out
so often that it's hard to keep up with
them. In the education arena, it's
even more difficult, with shrinking
budgets undercutting the purchase of
new tools and the educator training
necessary to use them.
In a new report, "The Common
Sense Census: Inside the 21st Century
Classroom," Common Sense Media
looks at this issue in hopes of learning more about the state of education
technology usage in classrooms across
the nation. The goal of the report? To
help education stakeholders-teachers, principals, school districts, and
others-make evidence-based decisions on what tools make the most
sense for students to use.

How do you help
your staff grow their
professional learning?

More than 1,200 K-12 teachers
nationwide participated in the survey.
From that data, the report focuses on
four main topic areas:
Digital citizenship curricula and
competencies. The study examines
the prevalence of teaching digital
citizenship and its perceived effectiveness, as well as the use of digital
citizenship resources.
K-12 teachers' use of digital tools
and perceptions of their effectiveness for student learning. The impact
of educational technology on learning often depends on the context in
which, and the purpose for which,
the technology is used.
Access to technology for classroom
learning. What does students' access to
technology devices for classroom learning at home and at school look like?
Technology integration policies.
To understand how technology is
used in the classroom, school policies

1. Teachers worry about students'
ability to critically evaluate
online content. According to the
survey, 35 percent noticed this
"frequently" or "very frequently"
in their classrooms. The second
top concern was that "technology
distracts students from the learning experience and interferes
with learning," reported by 26
percent of teachers as "frequent"
or "very frequent" in their classrooms. The issue was reported
more often as grade levels
increased.
2. Video is the king of education
technology in the classroom.
Video-streaming services were
the most commonly used digital
tool. Roughly 60 percent of K-12
teachers reported using services
such as YouTube, SchoolTube,
or Netflix in classrooms. The
second-most-common type of

Chara Willaford (@DrCharaChats): I encourage (well, expect)
everyone to use Twitter [and] connect with groups on
[Facebook]. How do you get them to do it? Model and make it a
fun, low-stress priority until it takes off organically.
Jeff Davis (@JeffDavisVAedu): I think we first ask them to work
closely with their PLCs and then reach out to colleagues in nearby
district/division schools, while also keeping a "filter" out there that
scoops up info from blogs, newsletters, and Twitter.
Chris Wooleyhand (@principal64): A good PLN is found in
seeking a variety of learning sources: conferences, Twitter, ed
camps, local events, etc.
