Southwestern Pennsylvania Engaged in Decade-long Dedication to Digital Health, Safety, and Citizenship

Allegheny County Intermediate Unit 3 supports the work and implementation of digital citizenship across 42 districts in Southwest Pennsylvania. With generous support from the Grable Foundation and in partnership with Common Sense Media, Unit 3 has worked with districts and other organizations in Greater Pittsburgh to provide innovative resources and support to help educators, families, and students develop the skills they need to harness the power of technology for learning. The partnership aims to help kids and teens in the Greater Pittsburgh area thrive as learners, leaders, and citizens in this digital age. As a result, the area has seen strong public-private partnerships and relationships, positive trends in impact data, customized support across 42 districts, and grants to support innovative learning across southwest PA provided by the local Remake Learning Network. Key to this success has been a strong dissemination plan, role-alike meetings held once a month, a strong professional learning plan, and inviting teachers to present with youth about their experience with the Common Sense digital citizenship resources.
