A new curriculum being developed by Common Sense Media is intended to help middle school teachers, parents, and kids themselves "raise a generation of responsible, smart, and safe digital citizens."

The curriculum is based on the digital ethics framework developed by the GoodPlay Project, led by Harvard School of Education professor Howard Gardner.

The curriculum has been tested in pilot programs in the San Francisco Bay Area, Omaha, and New York and will be rolled out nationwide in the fall.

To learn more about this curriculum, I spoke by phone with Common Sense Media CEO Jim Steyer. You can hear the entire 13-minute interview by clicking here:
