The Internet is an important tool for teaching and learning. Schools have an essential role to play in keeping children safe and secure online.

The Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) was enacted by Congress in 2000 to address concerns about children’s access to obscene or harmful content over the Internet. CIPA imposes certain requirements on schools or libraries that receive discounts for Internet access or internal connections through the E-rate program – a program that makes certain communications services and products more affordable for eligible schools and libraries. 

In this webinar, we’ll cover everything you need to know in order to maintain compliance and protect students’ safety and privacy when using the internet:

  1. The most common online threats students face, including cyberbullying, phishing, malware, hacking, exposure to inappropriate content, and online predation.
  2. The cyber policies and procedures your school needs to have in place to help keep students safe from online threats. 
  3. How to develop an Acceptable Use Policy before students are allowed to access the Internet at school via school-administered devices and/or personal devices.
  4. How to effectively filter and block content to prevent students from accessing inappropriate content. 
  5. The importance of teaching students to be responsible digital citizens in regards to privacy and security, communication, cyberbullying, self-image and identity, information literacy, and creative credit and copyright. 
  6. Best practices for educating students, teachers, staff, and families on online safety, including what to do if they are a victim of an online threat.
