How to teach students online safety and citizenship

Concerns about children’s online safety have evolved from protecting them to focusing on encouraging positive social norms, transmitting effective skills, and encouraging students to be helpful allies. In fact, federal law now requires schools that receive funding to educate students about cyber safety. Nancy Willard integrates her expertise in risk prevention, law, and education to provide a collaborative process for teaching secondary students media literacy, safety, and “netiquette.” She lays out the steps for school staff to team up with students to build an effective program that will teach young people how to:

  • Keep themselves safe
  • Disclose and consume information wisely
  • Respect the rights, privacy, and property of others
  • Take responsibility for others’ well-being when needed
  • Respond to inappropriate or dangerous situations

The author’s companion website provides access to surveys, stories, and news articles that spark student discussions and support the book’s activities. Cyber Savvy will show you how to turn techno panic into techno power!
