Internet Safety

I’ve posted some links that I use in my internet safetyinternet_safety units. I’m a firm believer in talking vs. blocking. Kids will inevitably stumble upon inappropriate material at some point. Our job as educators is to give students the skills to know what to do when that happens. 

With my third graders I use the Faux Paw the Techno Cat movie which opens up a great discussion about what to say and what to keep private online. The kids really respond to the Looney Toons style animation and music. I then have them type out as many things they know about being safe online. I also use Disney’s Surfswell Island (which keeps moving URLs and of this writing, I cannot locate). 

For my fourth and fifth grade classes, I use a combination of Brainpop videos and activities and some youtube videos created by middle school students. I feel the students really think about it more and the message hits home harder when it is delivered by their peers.
