Digital Literacy files

Common Sense Media in the United States and the SWGfL have recognised that schools need guidance on how to develop progressive programmes of digital literacy and citizenship within their curriculum. There is a whole set of freely downloadable documents which, if you do not already have similar plans in place should be a useful starting point for your school.

“To support schools in the UK, SWGfL has produced a series of documents which will signpost schools to the relevant Common Sense Media lesson plans, resources and to additional relevant materials from the UK, Europe and elsewhere. These SWGfL documents indicate the Key Stage that are equivalent to the Common Sense Media (US) age groups.

SWGfL acknowledges the work of Common Sense Media in publishing this excellent free resource for schools and has adapted these guidance notes for free use by UK schools in accordance with the Creative Commons licence (BY/NC/SA) granted by Common Sense Media. Schools should ensure that they understand the terms under which Common Sense Media allows the free use of their materials.”
