Cyber Safety.....

I was reading this article; http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/09/education/09cyberkids.html?partner=rss&emc=rss from the New York Times and they made reference to a teacher using a website put out by Common Sense Media, http://www.commonsensemedia.org/rules-road-kids to teach his students about using the internet. What I liked best about it is that it doesn't just talk out the 'dark underworld' of the internet out there, it also mentions kids' use of social network sites and how what they put out there could come back to haunt them. The video is straightforward and to the point and might be a real eye-opener for some kids in the junior grades.
