Using The Internet - Where Do I Start?

The Internet has become such a rich source of information and communication that almost everybody has access to a computer on a regular basis.  Because there are so many good things available, one tends to forget all of the dangers that are associated with Internet usage.  With technology, so much of it is still new that the law is taking a while to catch up.

 

Getting Started

Please double check the Internet Safety Rules before starting research online!  Mrs. Berbeza always reviews the 10 Internet Safety rules from SafeKids.com at the beginning of the school year.  At Pulaski, our kids' safety is our number one concern!
