Watch this short video from UNICEF(Children's Rights & Emergency Relief Organization) about the effects of cyberbullying. There aren't any words, but can you tell how the cyberbullying made the little girl feel? Who helped her?


Netiquette is a combination of 'net' (from the word Internet) and 'etiquette' (rules for polite behavior). If you use netiquette you are respecting other users' views and displaying common courtesy when online.


Your passwords are your "keys" to your information online. You should always keep your your passwords to yourself.

At school, your teacher knows your password so they can help you, but don't share it with any other students. If you think other students know your password, tell your teacher. Google has made it easy for you to use your school gcloud account information for many websites. Just choose "Sign in with Google" when you see the link and you won't have to add any additional information.

At home, your parents can help you with any passwords you may need. They should help you set up any accounts you need. Be sure to let them know BEFORE signing up online!
