Beginning a new school year is always a perfect time to re-visit the Internet Safety Issue. Although these Garfield videos are intended for elementary, they could certainly be shown to middle school students. It's just a great way to remind them that some innocent postings and searches might not be in their best interest.
You have a good discussion going here on Internet Safety. Our state of Virginia has been very proactive in providing resources mainly through the Garfield initiative for our students and teachers to have good resources on Internet Safety. I thought it would be worth mentioning here for those in the Texas group to check out another discussion on this topic. I've noted some additional resources in that discussion that we are using in Virginia.
Free Technology for Teachers recently referenced 11 Resources for Teaching and Learning Web Safety.
Is anyone familiar with any of these sites? Have you shared any of these resources with your students, parents, or fellow educators in helping people become more aware of Internet security issues. Please share you experiences.
