The Post below comes from the Moturoa Blog and is a very timely reminder as we head towards the summer break, of one way to ensure that we stay within a safe area on the internet - parents this would be a good site to take a look at - thanks Miss K for finding this site...
A number of children and their families have been keen to make a blog for themselves and this is really great.
We have been talking quite a bit about cyber safety while we are learning about Keeping Ourselves Safe. I would like to recommend Firefox as a way to browse the internet. It is the browser we use at school and you can use it on a PC or an Apple equally well. It is a 17MB free download and after you do you can automatically import all your old bookmarks/favourites and passwords. Firefox has a number of really useful extras that make viewing the internet better.
One of these is Glubble.
Glubble puts the web in the hands of families.
- Glubble Trusted Surfing for children under 12 years of age enables families to be sure they only see the best of the web they choose to allow.
- Glubble Altered Search makes Google and Yahoo show results from childrens' trusted Glubbleworld instead of the world wide web.
- Child friendly look and feel with interfaces for pre-reading and children with younger reading ages.
Certainly something to think about...
