An education and awareness initiative of the

Canadians - Cyberwise
A thorough and informative online document on Internet safety. The section
on promoting safe, wise and responsible Internet use is especially
interesting to educators.
CyberAngels is one of the oldest websites on online safety education and
endeavours to be a virtual safety destination/support network. CyberAngels
combats online abuse and cyber crime, and will provide assistance regarding
hacking, computer viruses, and protecting your family from online stalking,
harrassment and abuse.
This site is designed to help parents educate themselves and their children
about how to use the Internet safely. The GetNetWise coalition wants
Internet users to be only "one click away" from the resources they need to
make informed decisions about their family's use of the Internet. Be sure to
check out the "Tools for Families" section which includes an Internet search
engine that filters results.
Internet Security for Kids
This site, created by the Government of Canada, provides a variety of
internet safety information for both kids and adults.
This excellent site
contains resources to help parents deal with the media influences in their
children's lives. You'll find tips for talking with your children about
media values and culture, information on media industries and ideas for
taking action in your school and community.
Although this site was created for public libraries, educators will also
find it helpful. The site provides information, tips and materials for
promoting leadership in the field of Internet literacy. Information about
Web Awareness Day can also be found here.
