I'm working on my "computer safety" lessons for the upcoming year and found this article by Justin Reich helpful in organizing my thoughts. He talks about the failure of filtering in our schools and that our money should be spent on educating the kids in the following areas:
- Safegaurding personal information
- Dealing with advances from strangers
- Avoiding online scams
- Courteous online communication
Each of these bullet points will be a lesson plan in my classes this year. Nice way to break it up into units.
