The internet is without a doubt the best resources available to us, but we need to be aware of what we do or what we click on the internet because not everything we see on the internet is real.
What is cyber safety or internet safety?
“Web safety, or online safety or Internet Safety, is the knowledge of maximizing the user’s personal safety and security risks to private information and property associated with using the internet, and the self-protection from computer crime in general.”
“Cyber safety is the safe and responsible use of information and communication technology. It is about keeping information safe and secure, but also about being responsible with that information, being respectful of other people online, and using good ‘netiquette’ (internet etiquette).
Understanding cybersafety is all the more important when working with, or caring for, young children as they cannot make their own decisions about what gets published online.
Whether you are a teacher, an administrator, a parent, a family member or a caregiver, please read this page as it includes guidelines, links and resources on staying safe and responsible online.”
