***We are no longer updating our iBooks offering. The current version will be retired in June 2020. Due to technical constraints, students can no longer submit their work to teachers through the book. While the iBooks are otherwise still functional, they are an earlier version of our curriculum. We strongly recommend checking out our NEW Digital Citizenship Curriculum, which can be accessed for free here:

Common Sense Education's Digital Citizenship Curriculum provides the tools needed to teach students how to participate safely, responsibly, and respectfully in today's digital world. The curriculum is research-based, modular, and standards-aligned (CCSS, NETS-S, and AASL). Topics covered include internet safety, cyberbullying, online privacy, and more.

The Teacher Edition includes 15 lesson plans, engaging student activities and videos, materials to share with parents/caregivers, and professional development resources such as research, Lesson in Action videos, reflective note-taking, and implementation tips. The accompanying Student Workbooks (available for download separately) include the student-facing materials of the lessons (e.g., videos and interactive unit assessments).

Used together, the Teacher Edition and Student Workbook provide students an engaging and enriching experience that will empower them to use technology for learning and life. 

Updated for the 2016–2017 school year.


  • Won't download

    By MrMan2002
    I have been trying for weeks to download the book.
  • Could not download and install

    By Twelve Tribes
    I’m really looking forward to going through these materials with my kids, however the teacher edition was not able to download and install on my iPad mini. I will try to download it to my iMac and see if I have any better luck
  • Would be GREAT, but...

    By Jdwhitt13195
    Once the first ten students (I only have ten iPads), complete the activities and assessments, it is no longer useable to anyone else. It would be better if you could somehow put in a reset feature that clears out student responses after submission to the teacher. Otherwise, it's an excellent resource.
  • Will not work!!

    By Penny Williams
    I would love it if I could actually get them to load and open. All I see is a shadow of the books and they can't even be used. I would NOT recommend trying to download these as it is a worthless attempt.
