Internet Safety Series

Keeping our children safe on the Internet

The Internet is a wonderful resource that provides our children with research material for the learning projects they are assigned at school. At the same time, it poses unknown dangers to them as they explore web sites and share information on social networks. These online videos will help parents understand the importance of paying attention to what their children are doing on the Internet when they are using computers, cell phones, tablets and even gaming consoles. Parents will also receive guidance about setting "ground rules" with their children on using devices online.
