Welcome to the Cybersafety for Kids and Teens Self-Paced Class! Kids today are growing up in a different world than previous generations. In many ways, the Internet has changed things for the better, but it has also created some issues. Having the world at one’s fingertips has advantages and disadvantages. Devices that access the Internet are extremely easy to come by and cost-effective making them extremely popular among people of many ages. Social media has revolutionized how we interact and communicate with family, friends, and even people we don’t know. Anyone, anywhere under the cover of anonymity provided by the Internet can express themselves on just about any topic. These incredible capabilities also come with responsibilities. The topic of Cybersafety has come to the forefront of the news headlines in recent years. It is more important than ever before that kids and teens learn how to protect themselves, their information, and their accounts. This free class aims to equip kids and teens with the basic skills they need to be safe and kind to others while online. While it’s tempting to shelter our children from as much negativity as possible, the truth is that this is the world they are growing up in. Let’s walk beside our children and help them understand the basics of keeping themselves safe online while learning how to interact with others in positive and kind ways. The staff at Curriculum Crossroads feels strongly that these skills are critical for every young person to know if they are going to enter the world prepared – that’s why this class is being offered free to all students.

- Cyberbullying – What it is, how to recognize it, what to do about it
