Toolkits & Curricula
Our research initiatives often culminate in the development of “toolkits”: our growing collection of tools for the classroom, designed to facilitate reflection about dilemmas faced at school, work, online, and beyond.
Current Good Project toolkits include the GoodWork Toolkit, an elementary version of the GoodWork Toolkit for use with K-5 grades, and a Collaboration Toolkit. Our digital ethics research has resulted in two curricular initiatives: Our Space: Being a Responsible Citizen of the Digital World (co-developed with Project New Media Literacies) and a Digital Literacy and Citizenship Curriculum (co-developed with Common Sense Media).
All of our Toolkits are available electronically via free PDFs for practitioners who would like to make use of these materials. Click on our several Toolkits below to read more and to download.
The Good Work Toolkit gives workers at all levels the opportunity to reflect on the personal and societal implications of their professional lives. The Toolkit can be used in a variety of educational and workplace settings.
Access our Guidebook, Narratives, and 20 sample lesson plans, or view an overview, activity examples, and testimonials from current users.
The Elementary Good Work Toolkit is a curriculum designed for elementary school students in 1st through 4th grades. It is a work still in progress.
This Toolkit was developed to introduce younger students to the concepts of carrying out high quality, responsible, and honest work, which is important at any age.
The Good Collaboration Toolkit aims to help practitioners learn about best practices for effective collaboration, both as individuals and for larger organizations.
This curriculum takes users through the process of collaboration itself.
Our Space is a set of materials designed to encourage high school students to reflect on their use of digital media and their participation in digital spaces.
The Our Space casebook is a joint product of the Good Play Project and Project New Media Literacies at MIT.
The Good Play Project partnered with Common Sense Media’s education arm in 2011 to create a curriculum about online behavior and activities, focusing on ethical concerns.
If you are using any of our toolkits, we’d like to hear about it! Please contact us (or email firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any feedback, ideas, concerns, or questions about any of our projects, resources, and materials.
