17 Cartoon Videos Explaining the Internet and Internet Safety to Kids

17 Cartoon Videos Explaining the Internet and Internet Safety to Kids | i-Pads in Lower School Classrooms | Scoop.it

Planet Nutshell produces short animated videos to explain products, services, and concepts. One of their series of videos is all about the Internet and Internet safety for K-12 students. The series is called NetSafe and it has 17 episodes that were produced for the Utah Education Network. The videos are labeled with grade levels so that students in high school don't watch videos designed for K-3 students. The first video in the series is an explanation of what the Internet is in terms that K-3 students can understand.

This article is about younger students than those in further education. However it gives great insight into how ipads could be used with our college students which I will consider as we prepare and plan for the next academic year.

Technology in the Classroom!

Brian H. Burnett's curator insight, April 17, 2013 12:52 PM

Children are being able to show what’s in their minds by adding the oral explanation,” he said. “That’s off-the-charts amazing.” Particularly helpful, he said, is to watch the recordings made by young children and English-language learners—students who may not speak up much in class but can actually show deep learning when asked to interview each other or record what they know. But most eye-opening, he said, is watching children have their own “aha” moments after watching recordings of themselves and talking to teachers about what they were thinking at the time."


"This notion of using the iPad to make learning visible is not without hiccups, however—particularly when it comes to filming and editing. Despite all the talk about kids being “digital natives” who can navigate iPads before they can walk, teaching children to create videos isn’t easy. When I watched the first-graders complete their assessment on systems, one girl’s videos wouldn't save at first—a technical problem that could have dissolved into a meltdown if a teacher had not been sitting right next to her to help. “It gave me gray hairs,” said a first-grade teacher about those first few weeks teaching iMovie to 6-year-olds. But she quickly added that the extra time was worth it."
