The Wireless Foundation , the National Crime Prevention Council and Weekly Reader have created a brochure titled, Get Wise About Wireless -Cell Phone Savvy. It was produced to help kids develop good judgment in digital communication—and to be good citizens online, on the phone, and in person.
Cell phones and the Internet provide us with instant access to people and information. This instant ability to communicate with people we know and don’t know raises safety and courtesy concerns, especially for children. Are your kids savvy about cyber communication? Do they know what’s appropriate to say and send and what isn’t? Do they know how to handle cyberbullies? Are they bullies themselves, using text, email, voice, and instant messages, or photos to embarrass, upset, or insult other students? For more information check out the brochure below.
