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.
Try out one of these FREE Digital Escape Rooms to bring some well-deserved amusement to your home or classroom!
Escape Rooms are traditionally a physical “locked” room in which there are clues on how to escape. You need to solve each clue or problem that is presented in order to move onto the next clue, which, when you’ve solved enough, will eventually allow you to leave the room. Now, imagine this scenario, but in a virtual setting.
A digital escape room, like the ones described below, will give you a short story in reference to the theme. As you click through the prompts they give you, there will come a time where you need to solve a problem or a clue in order to click to the next prompt. Just as in real life, you won’t be able to “escape” until all the clues have been solved.
This site offers some of favorite Screen-Free Activities for Kids that will have kids learning and laughing. For PreK and elementary children.
