Jenni Borg's comment, June 28, 2013 4:15 PM
At first I was thinking that I was not so sure about this and maybe one for improvement; however, I can see its value for early elementary, and I really like it. It provides engagement, it's easy to follow, and it's fun.

5 Things to Try When your iPad Acts Up ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | ParentingOnline | Scoop.it

"We all panic when our iPad starts acting up, well no wonder its costly. But sometimes the source of the panic can be dealt with using  some simple tips. Other times prevention is better than cure, in other words, instead of waiting till our iPad gets "cranky" then start looking how to fix it, we can prevent such mishaps with proper usage."

10 Digital Citizenship Tips From Your Mother - Edudemic | ParentingOnline | Scoop.it
While 'the internet' and 'manners' don't tend to pop up in the same sentence very often (at least not in the positive sense), there are a number of ways that manners really do matter when you're interacting online.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, May 13, 2013 6:27 PM

Good manners and the Internet while not often used together in the same sentence, should be! Social media, or any digital communication amplifies human behaviour. You do yourself a favour to exhibit good manners and others will appreciete your presence.

Thanks to Dennis T OConnor for the link.

Judy O'Connell's curator insight, February 12, 2013 6:56 AM

When talking about internet safety, specifically in the area of online games, I always come across different opinions from parents about how to tackle the issue with their kids. Keeping your kids away from harassment or harmful and explicit content that might occur during online video games is a difficult and necessary task for parents.  Some parents choose to sit back and ignore the matter, others stop their children from using the internet altogether – can there be a happy medium between the two? I believe so.
