Be Internet Savvy

With students home (sometimes for hours by themselves), the Internet is a huge temptation for connecting with others.  The thing is, what and who you see on the Internet isn’t always reality.  A person can pretend to be anything, and you wouldn’t know the difference.  Be smart.  Don’t give your personal information.  Don’t agree to “meet up” with a stranger. Don’t tell a stranger that you are by yourself or where you live or who your parents/siblings are..

    I totally agree. There are a lot of nasty people out there, so you need to be careful so that you never ever meet them.

    I watched a video called your photo fate and it was good it was just warning people about what they send out. Be careful with what you send!

    I like how this video has a modern and realistic approach to internet safety. The people who made it understand some of the problems teens face nowadays, and it showed. They have smartphones in this video instead of box computers.
