CLICK ON THE GRAPHIC ABOVE TO PLAY DIGITAL COMPASS
Digital Compass is a free, online educational game that addresses the key issues that kids face in the digital world – cyberbullying, privacy and security, creative credit and copyright, information literacy, Internet safety, digital footprint and reputation, self-image and identity, relationships and communication – and gives students the freedom to explore how their digital interactions may impact their real-life relationships and future opportunities.
In the 21st Century, it is essential for people to be aware of the rights and responsibilities that are related to digital citizenship.  The lessons in Digital Compass have been developed from Common Sense Education’s K-12 Digital Literacy and Citizenship Curriculum, and are valuable tools for parents, teachers, and students to improved digital safety and awareness.
