YouTube Child Safety Training 101

OK, let’s talk YouTube.

Recently some students at school saw some shocking things on YouTube. We went into full mobilisation on how to deal with this. We briefly considered locking it out of the school’s Google environment but then decided to take the higher road. Students can and will still see YouTube in their lives so let’s do some research and prepare them for it.

The videos and slideshow below, along with classroom and parent discussions are how we began. I hope they can be of some service to others as well.
