Safety is and has always been a concern of teachers. And now, with all the technology and networks available to our students, it has become an even greater concern. Students need to realize that they are living in an UNFILTERED digital world. They must keep themselves safe and not put themselves at any personal risk by divulging too much information on the internet. They must also not believe everything they see on the internet; afterall anyone can post anything they want, anytime they want. They have to look carefully for reliable sources and also be aware of plagarism.
Parents must also be made aware of these dangers as well and I think I can do this by connecting them with sites like the Cool Cat Teacher blog.
