More Internet Safety

Today we used this site to talk to 4th graders about being safe on the Internet: http://www.media-awareness.ca/english/games/privacy_playground/

Privacy Playground

Next week we will discuss using instant messages. I found handouts and information on the same site: http://www.media-awareness.ca/english/special_initiatives/games/privacy_playground/upload/privacy_playground_guide.pdf

A perfect example of a website that uses every advertising method that we don’t want to give into:

There is a crossword puzzle and some other mini lessons. I am hoping to use them if only to drive home the major points that I want to stick in their memories!

About

I am the Library Media Specialist in a small public school in New Hampshire. It's the best job ever. I get to read awesome books, teach kids how to find what they need in the library, how to find their way around a computer and how to stay safe on the Internet. The best of both worlds, I say!
