Resources in iSchool: Internet Safety-Elementary
- This iSchool course contains iSafe videos and webcasts, as well as other video and interactive content from various websites. Coordinators must preview all material to determine if it's appropriate for their students. The best way to utilize the course is to have it cloned to allow for customization. As time goes on, lesson plans and other helpful materials will be added.
- School personnel should contact the district coordinator, Paula Setser-Kissick, for the Enrollment Key.
Since there isn't unlimited time to teach Internet Safety, it's important to cover the information with students in a way that's meaningful as well as efficent. The district has created a curriculum that rotates focus topics by grade level -- while still covering all topics required -- and strives to touch on different aspects of Internet Safety. Schools are not required to follow the curriculum.
Resources From Coordinators
Take a look at some of the resources shared by FCPS coordinators.
- CyberSense and Nonsense -- check out this site with quizzes and games on Internet Safety. Targets grades 4-6.
- Internet Safety Videos -- a grouping of Internet Safety videos on a Teacher website. You might find new videos that you've never run across.
- Montgomery County Public Schools (VA) -- much of this information comes from websites with which you might already be familiar. What's different is that it's already organized into upper elementary, which might be a time saver for you, especially if you're a new coordinator. Some of the videos will not work if they are directly linked to that district's server.
- Power to Learn--interactive case studies for kids and teens on online safety issues.
