Task 5 Option 2

I’ve discovered an American site ( https://www.netsmartzkids.org/ ) that offers age-appropriate resources on staying safe online for children aged 5-17. Resources include videos, games, downloadable activities, and presentations. The core characters of the site use their NetSmartz to interact with various internet ‘outlaws’ that represent different types of predators/dangers online, and model how the situations can be dealt with.

The overall program (NetSmartz) has different variants — including https://www.nsteens.org/ which has resources for adolescent/teenage audiences — and has been created by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in America as part of a mission to provide youth with the resources to prevent future victimisation by making them aware of safety and ethical issues associated with using the internet.

Overall an adorable site with many interactive elements that address various cyber ethical issues for a Primary student audience — check it out today at https://www.netsmartzkids.org/
