Summer Training Opportunity – DigiFest


Want to enhance digital learning in your school? Join Common Sense and NYSCATE for a day focused on leveraging the opportunities of the digital world for learning. The morning will focus on the fundamentals of digital literacy and citizenship and how to help students think critically, behave safely and participate responsibly with the digital world. We’ll explore lessons that address digital footprints and help you think about how to infuse digital citizenship in your school.
