Internet Safety

The National Public Radio Network reports on their website that Virginia is the first state in America to make it compulsory that schools teach children about internet safety. This is an understandable move given all the news around children at risk when they use the internet either through the social networking sites such as BeBo or chatrooms such as MSN Messenger.
The article finishes with some guidelines for both parents and children and although this information is from an American site the good practice it describes also applies to Northern Ireland. However if you want more locally based information the CEOP site (Child Expolitation and Online Protection Centre) provides the UK version of all the information you may require.

A major conference on Internet Safety aimed at all those who work with children will be held in Belfast on 8th November please contact a member of the ICT team at Clounagh if you would like more details.
