Welcome to the Web


Found this one on Technology Tidbits: Thoughts of a Cyber Hero

Welcome to the Web is a great site from the U.K. to help kids and adults learn about the Internet and how to use it safely & responsibly use of it.

A nice summary and how-to-use-this-site explanation can be found here.

The site is divided into 6 sections plus a “Welcome to the Web Challenge.” Section titles include:

  • The Beginning
  • Getting Started
  • Staying Safe
  • Using Your Browser
  • Searching
  • Top Tricks
  • Challenge

Each section except the Challenge has accompanying worksheets to help kids stay on track, and to help teachers track student progress.

This would be a great tool for classrooms that are just starting to get online.
