Internet Safety and Social Networking
Internet Safety and Social Networking in Powell Classrooms
Why is Internet and Social Networking Safety Important?
The Internet has drastically changed the way that children interact with the world. They have access to in-depth knowledge, tools to express their creativity, and people from all over the world. Yet with offering a fascinating, new way to connect with the world, the Internet also offers new risks. The definition of "keeping kids safe" in the 21st Century is very different from what most of us remember in the 1970's, 1980's, or 1990's. At Powell Elementary, we believe it is very important that we include training for all kids on how to navigate the extensive tools offered on the Internet.
The links on this page display the resources we're using to get your child ready for their 21st Century world, but these links can also guide you in conversations you can have at home. As always, if you have any questions, feel free to contact us anytime!
