Stop. Think. Connect: Reminding Kids to Stay Safe While Online

Parents with kids who are growing up in this internet age have undoubtedly got more to worry about than parents even five years ago. It is imperative that our younglings understand that anything posted on the internet (even if only briefly) can come back to haunt the poster (or the postee) forever.

Vicious gossip, bullying, hurtful photos … these are things that can be magnified to unbearable proportions when posted online.

I found this cute video today; it may see simplistic at first, but it’s message is right on.

This video was created by EMC Corporation and RSA, its Security Division. It was inspired by the National Cyber Security Alliance’s new “Stop, Think. Connect.” public awareness campaign. This features Jason Wise, an eighth grade Social Studies teacher and Director of Performing Arts in Roxbury, MA. Students from Boston and Manchester, N.H. also help spread the message about safe and responsible use of the internet in support of National Cyber Security Awareness Month.

“Stop. Think. Connect.”

Indeed. 🙂
