We are thrilled to announce that Charm City Virtual has earned the prestigious title of a Common Sense School and Mrs. Lemmo, our outstanding library media specialist, was named a Common Sense Educator. This distinction recognizes our unwavering commitment to educating our young learners about digital citizenship and involving the entire school community in meaningful discussions about the digital world. This recognition is a testament to our school's dedication to preparing students with skills crucial for their well-being today and the opportunities that await them in the future.
In today's fast-paced world, the landscape of digital media and technology is rapidly changing. These advancements offer incredible opportunities while also presenting challenges for our students. Young people harness the power of the internet and mobile devices to explore, connect, create, and learn in unprecedented ways, both within and beyond the classroom. However, this digital journey can sometimes lead to ethical dilemmas like cyberbullying and misinformation, as well as health concerns related to media consumption and emotional well-being.
At Charm City Virtual, we view these challenges as valuable teaching moments. We firmly believe that in the 21st century, digital citizenship skills are indispensable for students, especially in the current academic year. That's why we are dedicated to equipping our students with the knowledge and tools to be proficient digital learners, leaders, and responsible citizens.
The Common Sense School honor is bestowed by Common Sense Education, a national nonprofit organization devoted to enhancing the lives of children and families by providing them with trustworthy information, education, and an independent voice to thrive in an increasingly digital world. As a result, our students are better equipped to navigate the digital realm and utilize technology for their educational growth.
