Common Sense Media

Common Sense Media is one of my all favorite sites for reviewing apps, games, movies, website, books, TV shows and music. 

They also have great resources for teaching kids about Digital Literacy and Citizenship. This link has an index to iBooks curriculum, downloadable lesson plans and printed materials.
"Our Student Video Library has more than 20 videos that are each 2-4 minutes long. Use them in conjunction with their corresponding lesson plans, or use them to jumpstart a conversation with your students"
I especially like the one called Pause and Think Online with lyrics such as:

"From your head down to your toes. From your feet up to your nose."
  • think with  your head,
  • feel with your heart,
  • balance with your arms,
  • listen to your gut,
  • use your legs to stand up to bullies… when you’re online.
A few other featured video titles are Oversharing: Think Before you Post, Digital Animation 101 and Copyright & Fair Use.
