Glenwood, IL-(ENEWSPF)- Glenwood Academy announced that it is now a Common Sense School. Common Sense is a “national nonprofit organization dedicated to helping kids and families thrive in a world of digital media and technology,” according to a statement from Glenwood Academy.

“Glenwood has demonstrated its commitment to taking a whole-community approach to preparing its students to use the immense power of digital media to explore, create, connect, and learn, while limiting the perils that exist in the online realm, such as plagiarism, loss of privacy, and cyberbullying,” the statement continues. “The recognition acknowledges our schools commitment creating a culture of digital learning and citizenship.”

“We applaud the faculty and staff of Glenwood Academy for embracing digital citizenship as an important part of their students’ education,” said Liz Kline, VP, Education Programs, Common Sense Education. “Glenwood deserves high praise for giving its students the foundational skills they need to compete and succeed in the 21st-century workplace and participate ethically in society at large.”

Glenwood Academy has been using Common Sense Education’s innovative and research-based digital citizenship resources, which were created in collaboration with Dr. Howard Gardner of the GoodPlay Project at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. The resources teach students, educators, and parents tangible skills related to Internet safety, protecting online reputations and personal privacy, managing online relationships, and respecting creative copyright. The free resources are currently used in more than 100,000 classrooms nationwide.

“We’re honored to be recognized as a Common Sense School,” said Dr. Colleen Carter, Vice President of Academic Affairs. “By preparing our students to use technology safely and responsibly, we are providing them unlimited opportunities to maximize and personalize their learning.”
