More About Digital Compass
Invite students to explore digital dilemmas, make good (and not-so-good) decisions, and try out possible solutions through stories and mini-games – all without risking their real-world reputations. Discover how Common Sense Education’s award-winning digital literacy and citizenship curriculum seamlessly integrates into blended-learning environments.
Digital Compass is developmentally appropriate for middle school students and offers opportunities to the do the following: explore, experiment, make decisions (deductive reasoning), rationalize (abstract thinking), take risks, judge conventions (conventional reasoning), assert individuality, express themselves, form relationships (non-platonic), and interact with peers. It provides a safe place to explore decisions and their outcomes.
The game features eight topical modules with eight corresponding mini-games and printable extension materials, all tied to curriculum categories:
o Creative Credit & Copyright
o Information Literacy
o Internet Safety
o Digital Footprint & Reputation
o Self-image & Identity
o Relationships & Communication
Each module has 9 endings, 32 paths, and 51 unique combinations based on decision points.
Quantitative assessment consists of an individual’s scorecard (which can be printed) and records:
o Percentage score of story paths completed
o First percentage score of mini-gameplay (pre-assessment)
o Percentage score of highest mini-game-play
Each mini-game consists of three levels of gameplay, and has randomized content to encourage repeated play.
