CyberSmarts: Staying Safe Online

This interactive collection for grades 3 - 6 offers users a safe, simulated Internet experience with hands-on instruction on how to deal with important online safety issues. Today's technology and the Internet offer users myriad ways of keeping in touch, but it is crucial students understand the dangers of risks of connecting with others online. The set covers topics ranging from cyberbullying and online predators to social networks and online privacy. The eBook experience contains a series of fun, engaging "simulations" geared specifically to the topic. Users will create usernames, choose avatars, chat, send messages/email, create profiles, and receive friend invitations--all in a safe, controlled environment. For example, Stopping Cyberbullying shows users how to deal with online bullying, including collecting evidence against a bully and asking an adult for help, while Using Social Networks focuses on creating a secure online profile and making smart choices about sharing information online. Additional eBook features include embedded safety tips, vocabulary terms defined in context, sidebars that further explore important or high-interest material, and credible, vetted resources to find help or get more information.
