Love this infographic - walks students (Grade 5 +) through the use of Google search strategies. I've put this up in the classroom so that I can refer to it. With primary school kids, its not really a 'work alone' resource but it is great for using as a reference point to direct their research and search skills.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, August 26, 2014 11:30 PM

A great infographic to remind kids on how to find precisely what they are looking for. Remember, Google is not a person - do not ask it questions! Instead, use precise keywords and get familiar with the Advanced tools.

So timely for the beginning of the school year!

This is a graphic example for the article, but the site is a cybersafety site in the UK and has lots of information for parents about online safety for their children. It also tests their knowledge.

Rachael Johnston's curator insight, October 20, 2014 10:53 PM

It is important to build your own brand and to promote yourself positively. You want to be polite to other users and make sure you have nothing on your profile that could be damaging to your reputation. This includes swear words, inappropriate or rude comments, and pictures and videos of drinking or drugs.  This is really important for graduating students who, most likely, need to go through and delete pictures that have been tagged in one Facebook

Make sure you give credit to others if you share something of theirs. Also make sure you are writing your own posts and not just sharing others. However, make sure you are posting valuable and relevant information. Listen and think before you write and make sure you are using proper english. 

It is okay to have debates on social netowrks with other users, everybody has the right ti voice their opinion, but don't let things get too personal or nasty. 

It is also essential to understand that there are also hings to be very careful of when using social networks. For one, people are not always who they seem. You should also make sure you do not assume a false identity. It is important to keep some kind of professionalism, but don't change yourself or hide who you really are. 

You must also make sure you are abiding by the rules of the network and report others who dont. 

Last but certainly not least, be very careful about who you share things with. There are certain places to share certain things. For example, you may post something bout your personal life in your Facebook status, but it is not appropriate to do so on your LinkedIn profile. Do not share pictures and videos with strangers, you never know how they will use these.

Hi Kimberly! Thanks for thumbs up!
Also we ask teachers to fill a survey that could help us to improve. Maybe you could find a few minutes to fill it yourself and pass to other teachers who use it? Thanks!
