Internet Safety

http://www.netsmartz.org/Educators

When we start working with our students on the internet, we have to be aware that it is fairly new territory for them. Before they start their own blog, or use youtube as a research tool it is important to educate them on the importance of internet safety. I really liked this website because it has resources for teachers, parents and students of different ages. It also provides videos, power points and handouts to use with the children. As we talked about last week in class, the best approach is not to isolate or keep them away from the internet and technology. However, before giving them “free range”, it is important to first teach responsibility and safety.
