Congratulations OLSOTS on their Certified School Digital Citizenship!
25 May 2017
Common Sense Media, a non-profit organisation dedicated to helping kids and families thrive in a world of digital media and technology, has recognised Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Primary School (OLSOTS) as a Common Sense Certified School: Digital Citizenship.
Digital citizenship is a concept embedded throughout the school’s day-to-day teachings at OLSOTS, and as a result of this, the upper primary classes made it a specific focus in term one this year. They used Common Sense Education’s innovative and research-based digital citizenship resources over a number of weeks to focus on issues such as privacy and cyberbullying. The three upper primary classroom teachers involved – Miss Kim Maslin, Mrs Louise Keevil and Mrs Carla Maguire, have also been recognised as Common Sense Certified Educators: Digital Citizenship.
Year 4/5 Teacher and Digital Learning Coordinator, Kim Maslin, said “As a school, we are committed to taking a whole-community approach to preparing 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.”
A timely achievement as we continue our digital transformation journey as a system – congratulations OLSOTS!
