Discuss how, while clearly online safety is a primary concern, the Internet is also a wonderful source of information for students and it’s become a very important learning tool. We want to encourage students to use the Internet for learning (and sometimes leisure), but to do so safely. Determine the level of Internet savvy among the parents; reassure those with little experience that it’s not necessary to be computer whizzes to learn how to secure their home systems, and let those who are savvier know that they’ll still learn valuable tips and suggestions in the workshop. Find out the ages of the children; divide group according to children’s ages. Toddler-elementary school Elementary school Middle school High schoolThe Lesson – Part 2 : The Lesson – Part 2 Online Demonstration Instructor accesses the Internet using a computer with unrestricted access Visit several sites, including a few that might be considered “risqué” (but not too risqué) Instructor then accesses the Internet using a computer with parental control software installed Visit those same sites, demonstrating how parental control software restricts access to those deemed risqué. Class Activity—Parents try their own searches on both computers Parents conduct various guided searches on both the restricted and unrestricted computers to see how the parental controls work Provide a list of keyword terms to search on Provide a list of sites to visit Parents conduct their own searches using terms of their own devisingThe Lesson – Part 3: The Lesson – Part 3 Finish up with closing thoughts on the importance of children staying safe online Provide follow-up material for parents interested in doing further research Ask for participants to fill out an evaluation of the class Internet safety rubric: Internet safety rubric Skills to be assessed Beginner (newbie) Intermediate (well-versed) Advanced (savvy, expert) 1.
