Who is a Common Sense Educator?

Common Sense Educators are committed to helping kids and schools thrive in the digital age.  Anyone who is an educator -- whether a classroom teacher, administrator, tech coach, librarian, homeschool teacher, preservice teacher, parent coordinator, or community partner-- can become a Common Sense Educator.

Why become a Common Sense Educator?

  • Earn a badge that publicly affirms your commitment to helping students think critically and use technology responsibly to learn, create, and participate.
  • Build your confidence teaching digital citizenship and integrating technology into your classroom, school, or district.

How do I earn recognition as a Common Sense Educator?

The Common Sense Recognition Program provides a personalized roadmap for your professional growth! You can become a Common Sense Educator in three steps: LEARN, DO, REFLECT.

Criteria and resources for the three steps are outlined below. Completing these prerequisites should take approximately four to six hours, while the actual application will take an additional five minutes.

Criteria must be completed during the current school year. Applications are rolling. If approved, you earn a Common Sense Educator badge that expires in June 2020. Please apply anytime before June 30, 2019.
