Online Technology Information
We have added a link to an excellent resource on Social Networks and Internet Safety. Although our students think they are ready for the digital world, we find at school that they tend to share way too much information online. We strive to make our students aware of the dangers associated with having a Facebook account, Cyberbullying, Identity Theft, etc.
Please check out this resource for questions, answers, tutorials and interesting articles.
