Teaching Students about Online Safety

Center for Technology Implementation

Many parents and teachers of children with disabilities are well aware of the potential for in-class bullying and are able to take steps to stop bullying before it starts, but what about the exclusion and harassment that teachers and parents don’t see? As young people spend an increasing amount of time online, much of the inappropriate behavior, language, and material they encounter is beyond the immediate view of parents, teachers, and guardians. As such, it is important to prepare all students for safe interactions online, and it is all the more critical to examine the special risks and issues that students with disabilities face online. Using these tips and strategies, you can help your students meet the standards for digital citizenship and guide them to use technology and digital media in a safe and responsible way.
