How to stay safe in the online environment:
"According to a study by the Pew Internet and American Life project, 87% of all students
between the ages of 12 and 17 use the internet. The study also showed that 31% of these
children have sent an instant message containing something they wouldn't say to somebody's
face, and 39% have played a trick on someone by pretending to be someone different [while
online]." (Johns, 2006). It is safe to say that this percentage has increased since the time of this
report. Also, it is evident from trends in curriculum that more and more elementary-age
students (i.e. students less than age 12) are using the internet on a daily basis for
entertainment, communication, and educational purposes. In a statement from the Minnesota
Attorney General's Office, it was reported that "50% of children ages 13-18 frequently
communicate with someone they've never met, and 12% have learned that someone they were
communicating with online was an adult pretending to be younger." (Johns, 2006). Again, it is
safe to say that the age range reported in this source has now expanded to include children
under the age of 13.Schools and school personnel are also legally responsible for child internet
safety whiel children are at school. The Children's Internet Protection Act or CIPA was enacted

The top areas where children are vulnerable in the online environment:
1. Cyberbullying
2. Online privacy (See section on Student Privacy)
3. Social networking
4. Mobile smarts
Webster's Dictionary defines cyberbullying as "the electronic posting of mean-spirited
messages about a person (such as a student) often done anonymously."
Cyber Bullying: Statistics and Tips
In the 2003-04 school year, i-SAFE America surveyed students from across the country on a new
topic: Cyber Bullying. It is a topic that not many adults were talking about. It turns out to be a
topic all too familiar with students.
Bullying is no longer about the strong picking on the weak in the schoolyard. The physical assault
has been replaced by a 24 hour per day, seven days a week online bashing. Savvy students are
using Instant Messaging, e-mails, chat rooms and websites they create to humiliate a peer. No
longer can parents count on seeing the tell-tale physical signs of bullying'a black eye, bloody lip,
torn clothes. But the damage done by cyber bullies is no less real, and can be infinitely more
Cyber Bullying Statistics
42% of kids have been bullied while online. 1 in 4 have had it happen more than once.
35% of kids have been threatened online. Nearly 1 in 5 have had it happen more than once.
21% of kids have received mean or threatening e-mail or other messages.
58% of kids admit someone has said mean or hurtful things to them online. More than 4 out of
10 say it has happened more than once.
53% of kids admit having said something mean or hurtful to another person online. More than 1
in 3 have done it more than once.
58% have not told their parents or an adult about something mean or hurtful that happened to
them online.
Based on 2004 i-SAFE survey of 1,500 students grades 4-8
Cyber Bullying Tips
Tell a trusted adult about the bullying, and keep telling until the adult takes action.
Don't open or read messages by cyber bullies.
Tell your school if it is school related. Schools have a bullying solution in place.
Don't erase the messages'they may be needed to take action.
Protect yourself'never agree to meet with the person or with anyone you meet online.
If bullied through chat or instant messaging, the 'bully' can often be blocked.
If you are threatened with harm, inform the local police.
