Safer Internet Day 2/7/12

How did Nespelem School participate in Safer Internet Day ?

Our sixth grade students reviewed our school internet guidelines and re-wrote them in kid language in their Google Docs presentation to teach the fifth grade first, internet safety, and second, Google Apps.


We began teaching our TECH56 project on February 7th, Safer Internet Day. Grade six students began with Internet Safety.

We review our guidelines frequently, at least once per month. We even have flashcards to review any time. We want Safer Internet Day to be every day! We remind ourselves in class with our daily conversations to be overly positive. We practice in class how we want to be online: helpful, positive, and kind. It's not just an online expectation!

Be sure to look at the Safer Internet Day information, because online safety involves so much more. This year's theme  is "Connecting generations and educating each other, with the slogan: "Discover the digital world together... safely!"  Although we didn't share across generations, we did share across grades, and we will be sharing information with families. Check out our Net Safety Page.

  1. Isn't it good to know that Google is at the forefront of making sure that the Internet should be free for everyone to use, while at the same time being vocal enough in reminding Web users to be cautious and responsible with their online activities? I believe we ought to give Google a lot of credit for doing so.
