Common Sense School

Common Sense, an international nonprofit organization.

students and families thrive in a world of media and technology, has recognized Global Public School as a Common Sense School.

Global Public School has demonstrated its commitment to taking a whole-community approach to preparing its students to think critically and use technology responsibly to learn, create, and participate while preparing them for the perils that exist in the online realm, such as plagiarism, loss of privacy, and cyberbullying. With the right support, kids can take ownership of their digital lives, engage with real issues, and change their communities for the better. The recognition acknowledges our school’s commitment to creating a culture of digital citizenship.

Global Public School has been using Common Sense Education’s innovative and research-
based digital citizenship resources, which were created in collaboration with researchers
from Project Zero, led by Howard Gardner at the Harvard Graduate School of Education,
and are grounded in the real issues students and teachers face. The resources teach
students, educators, and parents tangible skills related to internet safety, protecting online
reputations and personal privacy, media balance, managing online relationships, and media
literacy. The free K–12 curriculum is used in classrooms in more than
80,000 schools by more than 1,00,000 educators.
