Digital Well-Being Lessons for Grades K–12

Research-based lessons to support students’ social-emotional learning and digital well-being.

Media and tech have a way of magnifying the stress that young people face on a daily basis. But why is that the case? And more importantly, what can they do about it (besides just taking a break from their phones)?

Support students’ digital well-being with this set of evidence-based lessons. Each is designed to help them build agency, reduce anxious thoughts, and increase mindfulness related to their tech habits.

The middle and high school lessons in this collection were co-developed by Common Sense Education and the Center for Digital Thriving at Harvard Graduate School of Education. Check out our Digital Well-Being Pacing Guide for implementation tips, curricular connections, and FAQs.
