Woodstock Elementary School has earned national recognition for its efforts to teach students digital citizenship!
Common Sense, a national nonprofit organization dedicated “to helping kids and families thrive in a world of digital media and technology,” has recognized Woodstock ES as a Common Sense Certified School for Digital Citizenship.
The school was certified for its work in preparing students to use digital media safely, including how to avoid dangers such as loss of privacy, cyberbullying and plagiarism. Principal Kim Montalbano praised Media Specialist Amy VanFossen for coordinating the school’s successful certification process.
“We applaud the faculty and staff of Woodstock Elementary School for embracing digital citizenship as an important part of their students’ education,” said Liz Kline, Vice President of Education Programs for Common Sense Education, adding the school’s staff “deserves high praise” for teaching students digital citizenship skills necessary for their future success.
