Resources to teach our students and their families about internet safety

December 19, 2010

Privacy Fades in the Facebook Era”  is a recent New York Times article that details how easily a person’s private information can be accessed online, even when they have taken steps to protect their identity from strangers.
  • Bullying Academy is a good website for 4th graders on up to learn and think about bullying online.
  • Hector’s World is a site for younger children designed to teach about safety on the internet via games and animations.
  • Netsmartz is a site for parents and educators that includes powerful video lessons about privacy and on-line safety.
  • IKeepSafe.org has videos and other resources for teaching and learning about internet safety and privacy.
  • Common Sense Media is a website that offers lots of resources for educators to teach online safety in grades K-12. It’s probably the best one, but you have to register (create a password, etc.) to log-in access their lesson plans, and videos.
  • Internet Smarts is another collection of resources, created by Cablevision.
  • YouTube for Schools is an initiative by the famous video hosting site that lets schools access free educational YouTube videos while limiting access to other YouTube content.
