Common Sense Media is dedicated to improving the lives of kids and families by providing the trustworthy information, education, and independent voice they need to thrive in a world of media and technology.
We exist because our nation's children spend more time with media and digital activities than they do with their families or in school, which profoundly impacts their social, emotional, and physical development . As a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization, we provide trustworthy information and tools, as well as an independent forum, so that families can have a choice and a voice about the media they consume.

One method of engaging students and making learning meaningful would be to ask students to interact with a variety of resources and then to create an anticyberbullying video, slideshow, or poster and present it to the class, school, or at open house or parent conferences.
NETSMARTZ videos. They have great videos for all age groups, information for parents, and a few lesson ideas, as well.
