Imagine you are working on a group project. Your fellow team member, Common Sense Education, is a rock star. They took on the task of doing the research for you, found a bunch of useful resources, and even categorized the resources to easily find what you need!
If you could use a website that finds, categorizes and reviews educational content, including websites and apps, for you--your new tool is Common Sense! From content playlists that highlight tech tools for learning everything from math to Shakespeare, to playlists that outline resources for learning about social-emotional learning and mental health, Common Sense will save you time through providing overviews, quality reviews, recommendations, and information about pricing and alternative options.
For example, the following review outlines two options for studying Shakespeare, helping teachers decide what might work best for their students.
In addition to tech recommendations, Common Sense has a Digital Citizenship curriculum with free resources for all grades levels. Check out the resources here.
Visit commonsense.org for access to all lessons, recommendations and reviews, and check out the list below to get started with a few exciting resource playlists!
