Josh Mika, a learning resource director at Beebe Elementary School, said that the education starts early with the kids, beginning in third grade.
They discuss what a digital footprint is and use Google
to search their names to see what is out there.
said it is not uncommon for kids to share that they have uploaded videos to YouTube
Then larger discussions take place.
Though there are three lessons per grade level for the Internet safety instruction, Mika
said that when questions arise, more time is spent and often it is necessary to return to the topic for more discussion.
