    Digital Compass is a one-of-a-kind online game that gives middle school students the independence to discover the implications of their online decisions. This is a great tool for teachers to implement into an independent center or station as students assume the roles of interactive characters while learning the basics of digital citizenship. As students navigate through digital dilemmas, they engage in possible solutions through stories and short games.

    Through this site, elementary teachers can create a culture of kindness in their classroom with free Elmer resources. The author, David McKee, delves into critical themes that promote a climate of kindness at school using the character of Elmer the elephant. There are several popular Elmer books included in this unit. This site shows you how to implement this book series as part of an anti-bullying initiative in an effort to create a safe, friendly learning condition for all children.

For each grade level, there are two cyberbullying lessons available and a ‘workshop in a box’ to heighten parent participation in your efforts.
