You can help your child become a responsible, ethical digital citizen with healthy online relationships. To do that, you’ll use the same successful parenting skills that you’re already using at home. Resilient digital citizens recognize and seek out the 3Cs—appropriate contact, content, and conduct—in all digital settings (e.g., iPods,instant messaging, chat, computer games, game consoles, cell phones, text messaging, webcams). To help you teach your children to safely and ethically use their digital devices, iKeepSafe has created the following programs:
It’s your identity. Defend it. Identity thieves and cyber-criminals are continually finding new ways to take advantage of those who are unprepared and unprotected—including online and through your home computer. It’s never been more important to protect your privacy, your credit, your money, and those you care about most.
iDefend® provides you with the 7 key areas of protection you need to defend yourself against today’s identity thieves and cyber-criminals. No other service gives you this level of protection – period.
The Faux Paw books and animated DVD series will captivate the attention of your young children and illustrate the important principles you desperately want to teach them about the safe and responsible use of technology.
Digital Literacy Tour workshops are interactive discussions helping students learn, through hands-on scenario activities, how to steer clear of cyber tricks and be responsible digital citizens. Each workshop contains a resource booklet for both educators and students that can be downloaded in PDF form, presentations to accompany the lesson and animated videos to help frame the conversation.
Designed to teach parents how to help their teens strengthen their privacy and safety on Facebook, the guide features important topics such as risks involved in social networking, how to parent Facebook users, managing reputation in the digital age, managing your privacy on Facebook, reporting problems and more. The guide will also be translated into other languages such as Arabic and distributed internationally
