FBI’s New Web Site Teaches Students About Cyber Safety

The FBI has launched a free, Web-based initiative to help teachers educate elementary and middle school students about cyber safety.

Developed with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, as well as the input of teachers and schools, the FBI-SOS (safe online surfing) Internet Challenge features six grade-specific islands for third- through eighth-grade students.

Each island has either seven or learning portals to visit, which cover the protection of personal information, password strength, cell phone safety, social networking and online gaming safety. The site also features videos that include real-life stories of children who have faced online predators and cyber bullies.

Visit the site at https://sos.fbi.gov.
