October Blog: Online Dangers for Kids and How to Prevent Them

Online Dangers for Kids and How to Prevent Them

This month's blog Online Dangers for Kids and How to Prevent Them discusses ways to keep your child[ren] or students safe from online dangers like cyberbullying, identity fraud, and online predators. Blogger Daisy Finn, an IT teacher and e-safety expert, says that "We should be the first to teach our kids about online dangers in order to prevent them. You can and should trust your child but it would be unwise to trust all Internet users." Her post outlines a few ways parents and teachers can help teach children how to surf the internet securely and safely.



App of the Month

Every month we are going to feature a different, and hopefully FREE, iPad/iPod/iPhone/Android educational application. Visit our ever-changing app page.

The App of the Month for October is Little Alchemy. Let your child[ren] or student[s]explore what can be created by mixing simple elements. Start with four basic elements and use them to create interesting, fun and surprising items. Explore and create 550 elements. The game is available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, German, French, Polish, Dutch, Swedish and Norwegian. The game is totally free and you can even check it out before you download it by visiting Little Alchemy online.

Available for both Apple and Android devices.

Compatibility: Requires iOS 6.0 or later for Apple devices, and OS requirements vary by device for Androids.
