Nortel LearniT’s Cybersafety curriculum and resources—tools, tips, activity guides, lesson plans, safe site lists, and more--assist you in working with the Internet and the expanding Web 2.0 capabilities which enable great information sharing and great challenges. Dealing with these can be daunting, confusing, tempting and dangerous for all users—young people, teachers, parents, and students of all ages. Almost daily, new web sites emerge that encourage the sharing of personal contact information, photographs and videos. Unfortunately, with this influx of new social media web sites, more and more kids engage in and experience unsafe and threatening behavior and cyberdangers online. Plus computer viruses and popups, spam, hoaxes, scams/fraud, identity theft, and cookies tracking your location and web site use are ever present. How can you make the right choices in such a volatile environment? What appears safe or comfortable may be very secure OR be very dangerous, causing actual harm in a multitude of ways.
