Making internet safety talks fun!
Starting in the 3rd grade, all students sign an acceptable use policy form that discusses the correct ways to use the internet in school. I accompany that signing with a lesson on safety, how to judge a website’s validity and basically how to be a media saavy “detective”. This year, I also added a free Brain Pop Jr. web video that the students really seemed to like. In fact it was so popular that I had the 2nd graders view it. The discussion following the video was frank and informative. Here is a link to the video in case you are interested.
