The presentation is in the Aledo High School Distance Learning Lab at 6 p.m.
This event is part of Aledo’s second annual “CyberSmart Week.” Each day during the week, Sept. 20-24, students will be given instruction on issues related to safe, ethical, and successful computer use. The nonprofit www.Cybersmart.org Web site will form the basis of this instruction. It provides grade-level appropriate information in five areas:
S - Safety and Security Online
M - Manners, Cyberbullying, and Ethics
