‘Cybersmart Week’ promotes online safety for children

September 14, 2010 by Randy Keck

Concerns about safety and student computer use are not new to parents or school districts. In an effort to increase the safety of our community, Aledo ISD will host a representative from the U.S. Department of Justice to address Internet Safety on Tuesday, Sept. 21. 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
