Free Technology For Teachers: Web Safety - Protecting Kids Online

Fifty countries across Europe are celebrating Safer Internet Day today. The day is designed to raise awareness of the dangers students can face on the Internet. Read more about Safer Internet Day here.

In an effort to teach children about potential dangers online the Council of Europe has created a game called the Wild Web Woods. The Wild Web Woods is designed for students ages seven through ten to learn how to spot danger on the Internet and what to do when they do spot danger on the Internet.

Applications for Educators
Wild Web Woods is an activity that all elementary school kids should complete before exploring the Internet. I actually had a high school student try the game today and she agreed that middle school and high school students could learn from the game too.
