Safety Zone

safeMy last post showed safe and approved tools and apps for the students but unfortunately not all websites or apps are safe. Being a parent myself I can understand and sympathize with the fear of cyber threats. We take every possible precaution in the classroom however once they leave it can be a whole new ballgame. Unfortunately cyberspace can be a very dangerous place, but together I feel we can keep the students safe from online threats.

Here are some links to articles about internet safety for you to better understand what we are up against.

I also want to share with you websites that can help  you to better protect yourself and your student. These will help you to explain and demonstrate safe practices with your student when it comes to cyberspace.
