Keeping Kids Safe Online Month - October

October is ‘Keeping Kids Safe Online Month’ in Wisconsin to highlight the need of responsible internet practices for kids today. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, in partnership with the Department of Justice, has released a new website about internet safety to kick off the month-long awareness campaign.
The Internet Safety website is targeted at all stakeholders (parents, educators, administrators, and students) and provides a list of resources and tools to help families and schools support the safe and responsible use and consumption of digital resources. DPI will continue to expand the website to include district exemplary programming, sample policies, and resources for 1:1 implementation. Below you will find the Lesson Planning Matrix which outlines the Internet Safety theme for each week of October as well as provides links to resources for teaching those topics.
