K - 1st Grade Using video and interactive lessons from the Internet Keep Safe Coalition, and a customized curriculum, elementary students learn to keep their personal information safe, to stay away from Internet strangers, and to tell trusted adults about anything that makes them uncomfortable. Students also learn what they can do when they witness bullying or are bullied.
2nd - 3rd Grade In addition to the topics covered in the K-1st grade seminar, students see an Internet Keep Safe Coalition video on cyberbullying. They receive additional information about appropriate responses to bullying.
4th - 5th Grade Through videos and interactive lessons, students learn why it is critical to protect their personal information; why they should never meet in person with someone they first encountered online; and how to recognize the common manipulative techniques predators use to deceive students. In addition, there is information on how to avoid and, if necessary, how to respond to cyberbullying.
6th - 8th Grade In addition to the topics covered in the 4th-5th grade seminar, students are cautioned about the dangers of revealing personal information on social networking sites or sharing inappropriate material with their cell phones.
