Internet Safety Resources

As the 2010-2011 school year begins, now is a great time to review our basic resources on Internet Safety. More and more children are going online through their mobile devices, including phones, iPods, eReaders, in schools and at home. Due to the multiple ways of accessing the internet, it is getting more difficult to block sites from children's view. Therefore, the keys to online safety are being aware of childrens' online activities and teaching children to exercise good judgement online. This is especially true when it comes to behavior on social media sites.

Click Here for our Internet Safety Resources, which includes articles, videos, and games for children to play to learn about staying safe on the internet. In our Character Education Resources, we've included grade-appropriate resources on bullying and cyberbullying to help teachers and parents address this topic, as it is becoming more prevalent on social media sites, especially for middle and high school aged students.

As a reminder, please don't forget to visit our Back to School section, which has been expanded this year with more materials for teachers and families.

Please send us any resources that you may have found on this topic, so that we can share them on the site.
