This course is written for beginners in the k – 5 grade levels. It goes over some very important rules to follow while on the internet as well as some helpful tips on how to avoid running into any trouble on the internet.

Description:  

In this course, there are 4 modules that cover everything from internet safety basics to cyberbullying.

  • Module 1 is an introduction to the course which covers the objectives of the course.
  • Module 2 explains internet safety basics.
  • Module 3 goes over dealing with strangers online.

As an elective course, we recommend one or two modules / week. Therefore, we feel that this course should take approximately 10 weeks to complete all modules/quizzes, and leave time to study, and take, the final exam. (See Lesson Plan below)
