Keeping Students Safe Online

It's back-to-school time around the country. For many kids, that means using digital devices in order to complete homework, stay connected with working parents, or communicate with teachers and friends.

Today's kids need digital skills to be successful in school and beyond. Help them to develop a healthy relationship with technology by teaching them to use it wisely and appropriately, for both schoolwork and fun.

Whether you are introducing toddlers to iPads or helping teens apply for college, the Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI) offers useful advice for parents and educators to navigate the online world and set healthy standards for tech use.

Share FOSI's Good Digital Parenting with children's parents to help them to Fill A Child's Digital Backpack with the advice and tools they can use to guide their children's tech use at each stage of development.

The Family Online Safety Institute is an international non-profit organization that seeks to make the Internet a better place for kids and their families. FOSI promotes a culture of responsibility online and encourages a sense of digital citizenship for all.
