Internet Safety - Who's Teaching Our Kids? | Lifeguards at the Digital Pool | Scoop.it
Source: Trend Micro BLOG / NEWSLETTER: Over the past year, Internet safety for kids seems to have risen moderately in importance among the general public.It is harder for me now than a year ago to meet a parent or teacher that doesnt have a story to tell about their school, where some kids may have gotten onto the Internet and into trouble.We clearly need to be providing education to our kids on how to be safe, responsible citizens online.
