Defend Your Children against Online Predators (3)

Along with parents, teachers have or should have
a determining role in children’s and adolescents’ lives. They need to become
more involved in on-line interests of their pupils / students so as to better
understand the youngsters and be able to identify and, later on, encourage the
strong and unique features of each generation.

Tips for Teachers:

  • Talk to students in order to find out what their
    interests and needs are regarding their social and personal lives;
  • Make sure you know and understand what
    filters are installed in your school and discuss with your students/pupils
    why these safety measures are so important for the school and for them as
    persons;
  • Involve them in online activities, using the
    computer as a didactic tool for diverse teaching purposes; place great
    value and praise on any student that uses the computer and Internet for
    proactive and interesting reasons;
  • Encourage students/pupils to use and
    download legit application and make them realize the importance of
    copyrights;
  • Closely supervise students’ activities in
    front of the PC: if they turn off the PC, quickly change windows, or laugh
    while in groups in lab hours, then you should look for inappropriate
    sites;
  • Tell your students that not everything they
    see or hear on the internet is true – and that the information people give
    away about themselves are not always trustworthy and that ill-intentioned
    individuals could use a great variety of methods to mislead credulous PC
    users for lucrative purposes;
  • Explain your students and pupils why they
    shouldn’t accept to meet people they don’t know and why it is so important
    to always discuss about this proposals with adults they trust;
  • Involve parents in students’ school activities;
    they are definitely extremely interested in taking the right precautions
    to protect their children from cyber criminals;
  • Put parents and children in contact with the
    authorities directly involved with protecting children from illegal
    activities – pornography, drugs, data theft.
