Common Sense Media dedicated to improving the lives of kids and families

Omaha, NE – Common Sense Media has been a national partner with Omaha Public Schools for the past three years.

The organization seeks to give educators the resources to instruct students, parents and families on issues such as digital citizenship, safety and security on and offline, as well as research and information literacy.

DeLayne Havlovic, Career Education Specialist with OPS says three Common Sense Media training sessions are coming up next month. He says the program is broken up into three sections.

"Ratings and reviews is one and any parent or interested person can go to their website at commonsense.org and they can see ratings and reviews on TV shows, movies, books and all sorts of media that's out there. They advocate for balance between media and kids. And finally they educate and that's the main focus of the training that I'm doing."

Training sessions focused on elementary students take place Tuesday, January 10th and Tuesday, January 24th from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. A training session focused on secondary students takes place Thursday, January 5th from 3:30 to 5:00.

To register, the phone number is 402-557-2610.
