In addition, the community will know that Timberland High School is deliberately instilling in students the skills necessary to be successful in a 21st century technologically driven world.
The Common Sense Media Digital Citizenship curriculum has brought awareness to students regarding online safety, cyber-bullying, plagiarism, and copyright. It resolved the misconception regarding online predators and what their stereotypical characteristics may be. Parents, caregivers, and teachers have a better understanding of the online obstacles and barriers students may face. The student culture has changed to a culture in which students are more proactive when it comes to cyber-bullying and their interactions with information as well as with individuals that they may encounter online.
