R.M. Moore Elementary School STEM Academy has earned national digital citizenship certification!

The school has been named a Common Sense Certified School for Digital Citizenship by Common Sense Education, a national organization that helps educators teach students to understand and safely use technology and to develop successful digital skills and habits.

“R.M. Moore’s staff deserves high praise for giving students the foundational skills they need to compete and succeed in the 21st-century workplace and participate ethically in society at large,” Liz Kline, vice president of education programs for Common Sense Education, said in a statement. “We applaud them for embracing digital citizenship as an important part of their students’ education.”

Principal Abby May thanked Media Specialist Wendy Landry, who also earned individual certification, for organizing the school’s successful digital citizenship program and application. To earn certification, schools must demonstrate best practices for teaching students to think critically and responsibly use technology, including how to combat cyberbullying, understand privacy issues and avoid plagiarism.
