  • Keeping Kids Safe Online
    https://media.dpi.wi.gov/calt/cyber-safety/story_html5.html

    October is Keeping Kids Safe Online Month. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI), in partnership with the Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ), designated the month three years ago to highlight the need for responsible internet practices for schools and families.

    The DPI and DOJ created a great interactive e-course called Interact, which should be completed by parents with their children. 
    This e-course takes an interactive approach to open up discussions about online safety in the home through watching videos, navigating online scenarios, and completing a family media plan. 
    It takes roughly 30 minutes to complete and is well worth the time and effort
