Blog Safety

Nancy Willard's new book for parents: Cyber-Safe Kids, Cyber-Savvy Teens, has been released today. Her previous book was Cyberbullying, Cyberthreats.  Nancy often speaks to parents and educators about internet safety. She has a website for Cyber-Safe Kids, Cyber-Savvy Teens. Nancy emailed me back in November to say she will be providing powerpoints on her site "librarians and teachers can use to present workshops on Internet safety and responsible use to parents in their schools and communities. I will use the "train the trainer" with a special emphasis on librarians — because I know where the "smart people" who understand Internet use are in local schools." 

Another interesting source on internet safety can be found at Check out this post about Predators and CyberBullies. BlogSafety is operated by Tech Parenting Group, a not-for-profit organization, and is affiliated with,, and Childnet International They state they are "where parents, teens, educators, and experts discuss and learn about safe blogging and social networking."

What other sites do you use to help educate parents, educators, and students on cyber-safety?
