Internet Safety

Internet SafetyStudents integrate the Internet into their lives. They use it for information, entertainment, communication in their personal lives, as well as in their academics. The Internet is amazing with what it offers students, however just as life offers opportunities, it also houses dangers. Educators have seen the need to not only teach students to navigate the tremendous power housed in this tool, but also to help parents and the community understand it as well.

Offered here are our presentations and additional resources on Internet Safety.
