2 The Internet On any day, anyone can be on the Internet at any time. The Internet is used by many people everyday.On any day, anyone can be on the Internet at any time.
3 When you are on the Internet you are in cyberspace. Just like you don’t know everyone in the real world, you will not know everyone in the online world, or cyberspace.Be CyberSmart!Think of people you meet on the Internet as strangers and don’t give them your private information.
4 What is Private Information? Your full name (that’s your first AND last name)Your address (where you live)Name of your schoolYour school’s addressYour address or your parent’s addressYour phone numbersPasswords (like for AR)Credit card numbersMother’s maiden name (her name before she was married)Where your parents workPictures of yourselfNo matter who asks you for these things on the Internet,get permission BEFORE you give out this information!
5 Fun on the Internet What should you do? Some places on the Internet ask you to join in the fun by posting your high score on an Internet game you have played.Your name is private information.What should you do?
6 Stop and use a CyberSmart! rule: Always ask your parent or teacher if it is okay to give out private information on the Internet.But never give your FULL name for a high score.(It’s okay to type in just your first name, initials, or a nickname IF you get permission first.)

8 You did what?!When you give out your private information over the Internet, it is just like walking around with a big sign that has your private information on it.Once you put something on the Internet, everyone can see it…even your parents, even your grandparents, even your teachers… and even strangers!
11 Protecting Your Privacy The Better Business Bureau and TRUSTe are special organizations that check web sites for kids to make sure that the owners of these web sites are following the COPPA law and protecting children’s privacy.They look at the privacy policies on web sites.You can usually find the link to privacy policies at the bottom of a website.
12 Let’s check out the privacy policies of some websites that we use here in the lab. Click on the pictures to open up the Internet sites. Try to find the Privacy Policies on each of the sites.12

21 Can you handle it? Cool sites may ask you for private information. Even though there are grown-ups around when you go on the Internet, YOU ARE THE ONE AT THE COMPUTER.It’s an important responsibility to stop and get your parent or teacher’s permission to give out information.
22 Chat RoomsChat rooms are places on the Internet where you can have live, real-time conversations with many people at the same time.Think of it as a telephone — except you type rather than talk.Everyone in the chat room can see what everyone else writes, but you can still be as anonymous as you want.
23 Online Chatting It’s okay to chat online with friends on the Internet. You can have very good talks with online friends.You can share your feelings and talk about problems that you might not want to talk about with friends at school.
24 Choose Chat Rooms Just for Kids If you want to chat, visit chat rooms that are just for kids.Most of these rooms have adults that monitor the conversations like a referee at a game to make sure everyone uses good manners and stays safe.
25 If you make a friend on the Internet, that friend is called a cyberpal. NO!Can you really know if a cyberpal is a boy or girl or how old he or she is?And since you don’t know who that person really is, treat a cyberpal just as you would a stranger and don’t give them any personal information.
26 Some people think it’s okay to say things in cyberspace that they’d never say to someone face to face.
27 Why? Maybe they think they can’t get in trouble in cyberspace. Maybe they think it makes them seem cool.Or, maybe, when they’re behind a computer screen they just forget they’re talking to a real person.
28 Take ACTION!If someone on the street makes you uncomfortable, you know to walk away and tell a grownup.The same rule works on the Internet.If someone is typing or texting things about you or others that make you feel bad, that is considered cyber bullying.Ignore them or get off the site and go tell a grown up you trust about what happened.
29 Feeling Uncomfortable It’s fun to explore websites and search for information.But sometimes you may find things you don’t want to see.
30 Feeling Uncomfortable It’s easy to stumble across icky or embarrassing sites by mistake.In fact, some sites have tricky website names on purpose.
31 What to doWhen you get that uncomfortable feeling at a website, get out of there!Click the BACK button or EXIT button on your web browser.If you feel upset, tell your parent or teacher what happened.
