Growing up Online

Frontline is running a program on Jan.22 called "Growing Up Online".
See the YouTube trailer.
Check out the Frontline website to read the press release or watch a preview.

YALSA has produced a great brochure "Social Networking: A Guide for Teens" and has it and other resources available on its site. NS Teens from Netsmartz has great teaching materials, videos and real-life stories about safety and social networking.

Our local paper ran this headline today: Man Accused of Luring Girl Online. A 12-year-old girl was lured away from her home through Internet contact by a 24-year-old man and his father. Are you teaching Internet safety to your children and students?
