Online Safety

The internet can be extremely useful however it is important to be careful and safe while using it. There are many risks when allowing younger children to use the internet such as, pop-up ads, cyber bullying, viruses, giving out personal information and inappropriate material. These things can be harmful to both the child and the computer. Cybersmart.com.au provides information and activities for teachers, parents and children. I looked specifically at the Young Kids section which provides developmentally appropriate resources. Cyber Smart also provides teachers with lesson plans and policies that relate to online safety.
This is a fun and engaging way for children, parents and teachers to learn about internet safety.
