Today's digital world presents a tremendous opportunity for innovation, but also significant challenges to keep children safe. Our kids' futures depend on their understanding and leveraging technology in a smart way. Internet safety education and training can help children, parents, and educators to know more about proper online behavior and the dangers the internet poses.
The School and Family Education about the Internet (SAFE Internet) needs wide policy to support existing and new internet safety programs that meet guidelines based on the cyber safety strategies found to be most effective.
We have to find out the ways and means to meet the challenges and opportunities the internet presents without denying our children access to this great resource, but to make sure they know how to use it wisely.
Just as we make sure our children know not to talk to strangers, not to bully kids on the playground, and not to give out their personal information, we have the same responsibility to teach them to apply these values online. That's why we suggest having some guidelines to make internet safe for children.
The educators, parents and other agencies together can research to determine best practices in internet safely education and then create guidelines. The same can be presented to central agency for implementation.
There need to be allocation of fund so that recipients would use the funds to develop internet safety education programs, train teachers and administrators, maintain media campaigns to promote awareness of the risks children face online, and educate parents about identifying and protecting their children from those risks.
Researchers and heads of administering government agencies will evaluate current internet safety education programs, gather findings regarding at-risk children, and examine any other area of interest. The research group also would identify gaps in internet safety education. A final report from the group can be used to further identify and refine best practices in internet safety.
Though, we are very late for this, there should be a law that will bring together industry leaders, parents, educators, students, policy makers, and law enforcement officials, and will encourage them to collaborate to keep children safe online. We are of the opinion that adults need to help to protect our kids and give them cyber literacy skills.
The Central Government should express support for the SAFE Internet by introducing appropriate law. Educating children must be our first line of defense to keep them safe from the dangers of online predators, cyber bullies and other online dangers. The proposed law would help schools learn how to respond when a student is victimized online. The organizational support passage of the law could help prevent millions of children from being victimized online.
