October 2nd is Digital Citizenship Day and to help commemorate the day and the rest of the year, Edmodo & Common Sense Media have teamed up to create a Digital Citizenship Starter Kit! The Digital Citizenship Starter Kit includes a poster, as well as a series of activities and lessons designed to introduce digital citizenship concepts directly in Edmodo. All lessons are based on Common Sense Media's K-12 Digital Literacy and Citizenship curriculum and include topics such as:
- Internet safety and security
You can download the starter kit here and discuss best practices with other educators by joining the Digital Citizenship Community on Edmodo code 6rvzx5 to bring students and innovative educators into the discussion.

If you're in Manhattan, adults and teens are invited to an important discussion about growing up online. Moderated by MTV news correspondent, Sway. It's teens' chance to share what they love - and what they don't love - about the digital world. Plus, they'll showcase teen-produced videos and a youth performance on digital citizenship.
