Ensuring student safety online

Edublogs has a great article on student safety online addressing cyber bullying (mostly on phones ans SMS, not the internet), internet predators (“about 1% of child abuse and sexual abuse cases”), whether students should use their real names, photos or their work being public or private.

The most interesting comment I found on there was:

you can’t just do one off lessons on cyber safety. Cyber safety is not a separate subject.

A must read for all principals, teachers and educators. Read the article on the Edublogs site.
