Teaching and learning guide for 2015-2016

Going Places Safely

Essential Question: How do I go places safely on the computer?

Students learn that they can go to exciting places online, but they need to follow certain rules to remain safe. By taking a virtual field trip, students experience the power of the Internet to take them to places they might not be able to visit in person. They learn that they should follow safety rules when they travel online, just as when traveling in the real world.
