INTERNET
SAFETY




What do I need to know about the Internet and my child?


Use of and access to the Internet has exploded over the last ten years.
The World Wide Web has enabled us to do things from the comfort of our
homes like never before. The Internet can be a useful tool, and lots of
fun.



When your child goes on line, they can:

Access educational resources including encyclopedias, journals, and more.

Obtain up-to-the-minute information on current events.

Send mail instantly to people around the globe.

Learn about places around the world and be exposed to other cultures and
other points of view.

Participate in real-time forums on topics of interest.

Get help with homework through all kinds of references and resources.

Have fun playing games, sometimes with people thousands of miles away.



Take an active role in your child's Internet activities.


Protect your child's privacy online

Keep your computer in a common area instead of in your child's bedroom
so you can easily monitor your child's Internet usage.

Share an e-mail account with your children so you can keep track of the
messages they receive.

Bookmark your child's favorite Web sites for easy and convenient access.

Spend time exploring the Internet together.

TEACHING
CHILDREN
HOW TO
SEARCH
THE INTERNET




Have you ever looked over a child's shoulder while they search the
internet? There is so much indiscriminate clicking going on!

Whatever comes up first must be what they are looking to find. Add
to that interesting graphics and advertisements it isn't long before
where they've ended up isn't in any way related to what they were
looking for to begin with!

When using the internet with younger children, particularly third
grade and lower, it is in your best interest to have a predefined
set of websites selected for the students to utilize. This will
focus the work time and help the students become more productive
since the issue of website credibility and random searching will
be eliminated. Even with older students I often tell them that they
must first use the online encyclopedia before venturing into the
search engines.
