Safer Internet Day

Yesterday, worldwide, was Safer Internet Day, and in schools around Australia there are activities and events being held all week to promote safety online.   If you have children at school this is a great opportunity to talk to your kids about their safety online, and also for you to get to know what the dangers are and what you can do to protect your children and yourself.  There are some great resources available, and I've put together a collection for you of those I think are the best.  Just click on the name of each to go to that article or site.
