Jitta Bugs and the Internet
Jitta Bug Learning Center is a STEAM School. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. With the help of Common Sense Media our teachers are more in-tuned with the students needs and interest and how to use the internet correctly. Our Educators are also Common Sense Certified Educators and we currently working towards making our school a Common Sense Certified School. Below you will find an explanation on what Common Sense Media is, tips on how to use the internet, and important information for parents to learn how to keep their child safe while on the internet.

What is Common Sense Media?

         Common Sense is dedicated to helping students thrive in a world of media and technology.  Common Sense empower parents, teachers, and policymakers by providing unbiased information, trusted advice, and innovative tools to help them harness the power of media and technology as a positive force in all kids’ lives.

         Media and technology are at the very center of all our lives today -- especially our children’s.  Students today spend over 50 hours of screen time every week. The media content they consume and create has a profound impact on their social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development.  Learning how to use media and technology wisely is an essential skill for life and learning in the 21st century. But parents, teachers, and policymakers struggle to keep up with the rapidly changing digital world in which our children live and learn.  Now more than ever, they need a trusted guide to help them navigate a world where change is the only constant. 

       Common Sense Media helps families make smart media choices. We offer the largest, most trusted library of independent age-based and educational ratings and reviews for movies, games, apps, TV shows, websites, books, and music.  Our Parent Concerns and Parent Blog help families understand and navigate the problems and possibilities of raising children in the digital age.
