Internet Safey Class @ CSD Next Week

St. Louis area educators, do you want to learn the Internet Safety concepts of:

  • Cyber Security?
  • Personal Safety?
  • Cyber Bullying?
  • Cyber Predators?

Do you worry about the dangers that lurk online for our children? We teach them how to be safe within the physical community, but what about safety in the cyber community? In this class, learn how you can help your students navigate the world wide web- safely. For instance, do you and your students know how to validate information found on the web? Too often, information published on the Internet is viewed as truth, but is it really? Also, what about copyright? Do students have the legal right to copy and paste information from a website into their multi-media presentations and/or their own documents and websites? In addition to Internet Safety, learn the new grammar of the Web and how to:

  • Read URL web addresses to find their hidden meaning
  • Locate owners of websites
  • Evaluate the validity of a website
  • Investigate fair use as it applies to student-created digital documents

Participants will have the opportunity to learn about the iSAFE curriculum and the modules available to them in the classroom. They will create model lessons for their students that teach Internet Safety, Literacy, and Intellectual Property/Copyright.

On March 3 & 4, come to CSD for Online “Street Smarts:” Being Legal, Literate, and Secure.

The class runs 4:00 – 7:00 pm each evening and costs $138 for CSD member and $214 for non-members. To sign up, click here.

RoundTrips & MOREnet Present Internet Safety VC 2009

mouse and keyboardThere is no doubt we now live in an “Internet Age.”  At the click of a mouse, you can e-mail hundreds of people simultaneously, buy that long-desired vintage automobile, or create a personal profile to share with the world.  With unlimited opportunities, cyberspace may well have become the new “final frontier.”  How best can we explore this frontier?  How can we minimize risk and maximize safety?  How can we help students be secure in their Internet activities?  These are important questions, and we invite you and your students to participate in this important discussion over videoconference with RoundTrips.  Students will interact with a variety of experts in the field including Joe Laramie, Director of Missouri’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, and they will also have the chance to share with each other as well.

Topics in this free distance learning opportunity include online predators, cyber-bullying, identity theft and other Internet-related issues.  “This is such an important issue – it is absolutely critical for kids, parents and community members to be on the same page with regard to online safety,” said Randy Raw, Manager of Network Security at MOREnet. “The Internet is a fantastic learning tool, but like any tool, people need to understand what the risks are and how to use it safely.”

Teaching Students How to be Safe Online

Cooperating School Districts (CSD) is an education consortium serving 64 public school districts in Missouri and Illinois. CSD strives to share the latest in emerging technologies. The Virtual Learning Center at CSD teaches educators how to integrate technology into the classroom. Technology is a tool that prepares students with the higher order thinking and questioning skills needed for the workforce. When students work with technology and the Internet, they are required to use these skills. Each project they work on is, in essence, a performance task. Our cyber safety course shares how to get online and use the resources found there safely and effectively. This course does have 1 graduate credit available; see registration website.
