The Internet is a wonderful resource that provides our children with research material for the learning projects they are assigned at school. At the same time, it poses unknown dangers to them as they explore web sites and share information on social networks. These online videos will help parents understand the importance of paying attention to what their children are doing on the Internet when they are using computers, cell phones, tablets and even gaming consoles. Parents will also receive guidance about setting “ground rules” with their children on using devices online.
These five videos provide an overview of the Internet and the ways in which our children are using it. They introduce parents to information that they need about social media, cyberbullying, sexting and more. Parents will gain insights and ideas on how to talk to their children about staying safe online. Originally created by ESD 112, this program is now available to NCESD member Districts.
