    To leverage technology for learning, students need to understand how to think critically, behave safely, and participate responsibly online.  As a result of our commitment to student safety and learning, Broad Run High School will implement the nationally-recognized Digital Citizenship curriculum available through Common Sense MediaClick here (en Español)to see an overview of the Digital Citizenship curriculum.

    Oops! I Broadcast It on the Internet: Our teens live in a culture of sharing that has forever changed the concept of privacy.

I Broadcast It on the Internet.
     
    Copyrights and Wrongs: New technologies make it easy for people to download and use creative work, in many different ways, such as movies, music, articles, books, and art. But in a fast-paced online culture, it’s easy to forget about copyright law. Take a look at the Family Tip Sheet (en Español) for Copyrights and Wrongs.
     
    Feeling On Display: Teens are keenly aware of what it means to be popular, and how others perceive them.
