Printable handouts are included. Parents may want to skim through the activities to get ideas for discussing Internet safety with their children. Primary (Ages 5-7) Creating an E-Safety Policy The SWGfL Template E-Safety Policies have been adopted by local authorities, schools and academies across the UK, and are acknowledged as good practice documents. The latest versions have been updated following review and support by a Local Authority Audit Team. The templates provide guidance, an indication of what should be included and a flexible approach allowing each school or organisation to challenge, consider and debate. The result will be your very own E-Safety Policy that whilst built on foundation blocks, includes content that makes it unique and relevant for your school or organisation.

Promoting E-Safety on Edmodo Here in the UK we have a government-backed organisation called CEOP (the Child Exploitation and Online Protection centre) that provides children with: advice, guidance and, if required, the ability to report online crime. They encourage owners of popular websites to include a link to their 'Click CEOP' button which children can easily click on to access a variety of their online e-safety resources - I obviously registered with them to be able to put it onto my school's website. When I launched Edmodo in my school I made sure that all the children clearly understood my behaviour expectations when using the website, as well as the actions which would be taken if they were broken. I even created a mini poster reminding them how to stay safe on Edmodo and set it up on my website so that children automatically see it for ten seconds before being redirected to the main Edmodo login screen.

CYBER LAW Liability of Cyber Cafe Operators Various risks are inherent in the role of a Cyber Cafe operator. However, considering their importance in this cyber age, it is imperative that their business must go on. There have been various cases in India where cyber cafe owners have been put behind bars for the misuse of their computer systems by their customers, when we kept wondering why the innocent cyber cafe owner was being made liable for the offence committed by his customers. Cyber cafes have always acted as an easy medium for the commission of illegal activities in cyberspace and Cyber Cafe operators have many times been implicated for the acts of their customers. In the first week of January, 2009, several mails were sent to some of the IT companies of Bangalore, from a Cyber Cafe, threatening terrorist attacks. There have been many such instances in the past where Cyber Cafes have been used, as a medium, for either real or false terrorist communication.
