I agree,onguardonline is a great site; http://www.onguardonline.gov/topics/net-cetera.aspx with valuable information and tools. I haven't ordered the free hard copies of their document yet but after looking at the pdf version, I think it's worth giving it out to students in our schools.
Here is another link to a site for teens that is particularly relevant today...

I went into the websites this is exactly the kind of Valuable information that we need share! While we deal with this type of information everyday, most regular classroom teachers do not. The resources for onguardonline were very specific and addressed multiple issues. The online games are great for the shorter (and taller) students. I'll have it up on the curriculum area of the website this evening. Now if we can get some examples of student work?

The following is text from an email from this government organization…
We’re very happy that you’re interested in using Net Cetera. We’re working with several schools and school districts on pilot programs in which they distribute Net Cetera materials, and are looking forward to their feedback – how they use the guide, what works, what doesn’t, and what other information or materials might be helpful for families. Here’s how you can join us:
The booklet is available in English<http://www.onguardonline.gov/topics/net-cetera.aspx> and in Spanish<http://www.alertaenlinea.gov/topics/net-cetera.aspx>. To order free copies, visit http://bulkorder.ftc.gov<http://bulkorder.ftc.gov/>. You also can order free Net Cetera bookmarks<http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/bookmarks/bmk16.pdf> at http://bulkorder.ftc.gov<http://bulkorder.ftc.gov/>. Finally, we have put together a PowerPoint presentation (which you can find here - http://www.onguardonline.gov/net-cetera<http://www.onguardonline.gov/topics/net-cetera.aspx>) that you may find helpful as you build your program. Feel free to use it, adapt it, and share it with your colleagues and community.
Net Cetera is in the public domain, so you can include sections of it in your newsletter or on your website, reprint it with your own logo (we’ll supply the specs), or co-brand it with OnGuard Online.
Feel free to use the other materials<http://www.onguardonline.gov/tools/order-publications.aspx>, games<http://www.onguardonline.gov/games/overview.aspx>, and videos<http://www.onguardonline.gov/videos/overview.aspx> from OnGuardOnline.gov<http://www.onguardonline.gov/> as well. These resources are available in Spanish at AlertaenLinea.gov<http://www.alertaenlinea.gov/>.
If you have any questions or are interested in distributing Net Cetera more broadly, please let me know. You can reach me at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> or 202-326-2803. Thanks so much – I look forward to hearing about how you use the materials!

I know we went round and round on this last fall, but I'm still unclear. Are we able to use an Internet safety program such as this that we create and still call it certified to meet the federal requirements? At ANESU we purchased ISafe for this year but are not thrilled with it. It does come with its handy certificate, though!
