Family Online Safety Contract


I don’t know if people know how concerns about online safety  affect the use of technology in schools and families and communities. While working in a rural area, I came in contact with a parent who told me that he solved the cyberbullying program by cutting the cord to the computer.  It made me sad. It made me jump to the reality of the problem. I think the following document is a good way to start the conversation.

I have been reading and learning about family involvement in online safety.

I found this contract  that I think is a great initiative for summer for families.

PTA and school groups could facilitate the sharing of this document.
