Internet Safety and You is an interactive online resource aimed at helping students and families become safe and responsible Internet users. Featuring Garfield the cat and his friends, kids and teens work through four learning modules that address online safety, cyberbullying, forms of media, and distinguishing fact from opinion. They learn important concepts through an engaging narrative-based animated segment. Then they collaborate with Garfield and his friends for guided practice. Finally, they apply what they have learned through interactive challenges. Additional resources for parents and teachers ensure that kids and teens have the additional support they need.
Internet Safety and You is a collaborative project of the Virginia Department of Education, the Professor Garfield Foundation, the Office of the Attorney General of Virginia, and the Verizon Foundation.
