Click with Caution
Here's an excerpt from the press release:
...Clicking with Caution, a four-part internet safety video that will be distributed to all NYC middle-school students this week. Clicking with Caution was created by kids for kids, in partnership with Microsoft and Reel Works Teen Filmmaking—an organization that helps teenagers express themselves through film production. The DVDs were funded by the New York City Criminal Justice Coordinator and Microsoft, and will be airing on NYC life, the flagship station of NYC Media.
Featuring introductions by “Gossip Girl” star Jessica Szohr, the DVDs contain two narrative pieces and two documentaries, covering the following topics:
Online Sexual Predators: Young people must be cautious when using chat rooms or social networking sites. This video shows children how to protect themselves from people they meet on these Web sites who may be dangerous.
Cyber Bullying: Students often do not realize that the Internet—through Web sites, blogs, social networking, e-mail, and instant messaging—can escalate bullying behavior. This video shows students the consequences of cyber bullying and how they should handle these situations.
Maintaining Anonymity: Teenagers tend to reveal personal information online without realizing it. Watching this video will help children avoid accidentally sharing personal information with strangers that could put them at risk.
Online Gaming: Internet gaming has become a popular hobby for students, but it is important to remind kids that excessive gaming can be harmful.
