This internet site is a great tool for educators and students to learn about cyber safety. A concern that parents and educators have is how to keep kids safe online. With today's social networking websites, students have the ability to communicate with their friends, but they can also meet people who will try to exploit them, commit fraud and steal individual identity. This website will help you to set good safety habits for your students.
The Department of Consumer Affairs and the California Coalition for Childrenís Internet Safety have partnered to bring this web site to California Citizens, especially parents. The nature of this web site is dynamic and offers ongoing information. The Coalition also sponsors an annual summit on cyber safety. This site is California friendly! It is also supported by the Governorís office.
Internet use has changed. Increasingly, our students are using the Internet for social purposes, not simply to look up information or buy things. School administrators have to worry about more than filtering out inappropriate content; they have to add cyber safety to the course of instruction. In this episode of Radio TICAL, Susan Brooks-Young offers ideas for how you can meet these safety challenges without giving up valuable instructional uses of the Internet.
Technology planning processes are continuing to change as the internet develops. Cyber safety and other ethical issues regarding the proper use of technology is at the forefront of education. Section 51871.5 in the California Education Code has been amended by AB 307, which is also referred to as the Chavez bill. Any school in the state of California can apply for technology related grants if they have a current technology plan. Due to AB 307, all technology plans must have a component to educate pupils and teachers on the appropriate and ethical use of information technology in the classroom. This link will take you to what the California Education Code currently says about technology planning practices.
