23 Great Lesson Plans for Internet Safety
Rating

Help kids practice smart internet habits and stay safe online.

Educators' approach to internet safety in the classroom has changed as technology and our use of it continues to evolve. In the past, digital citizenship lessons on internet safety focused more on dos and don'ts, like do create safe passwords and don't talk to strangers online. While secure passwords are certainly important for technology users of all ages, and stranger danger is nothing to take lightly, most internet safety dilemmas are much more nuanced.

The best internet safety lessons recognize the complexity of these topics and help students build the critical-thinking skills and habits of mind to navigate the dilemmas they encounter. Included are the best internet safety lesson plans for students in grades K–12.

Rating

"Gaming Concepts was written as a turn-key curriculum that almost anyone with even rudimentary computer skills could teach.
