1. How do we explore the internet safely?

1.1. One tip we can use to explore the internet safely is putting the work 'Kid' into our search. This helps us to find child friendly search.

1.2. Before clicking on a website check the URL first and see if it is a known site, education site, government site?

1.3. Be wary of websites that are cluttered with advertisements or might be trying to sell you something.

1.4. Don't give out any personal details to people you don't know

2. What is the internet?

2.1. The World Wide Web is the collection of linked pages that are accessed using the Internet and a web browser.

2.2. It allows you to move from one site to another or within one site with the click of a mouse.

2.3. The Internet is a huge network of networks that links computers together all over the world using a range of wires and wireless technologies.

3. Internet tricks and tips

3.1. Instead of using your basic google search try google advance and use these our NETS for a more precise search. Google Advanced Search

3.1.1. Net 1: Start narrow When searching on the web thousands of pages come up, a lot of the time these pages aren't exactly what you're looking for. Here's where you can think, what are the exact words you are looking for and what words are you not. The words you do want you can add to googles advance search bar 'all these words' and words you do not want to see you can add to 'none of these words'. This will help narrow you search down.

3.1.2. Net 2: Find exact phrases When searching you can search for exact phrases by writing a specific phrase in the 'this exact work or phrase' bar. This will locate those exact words in that order for you.

3.1.3. Net 3: Trim back the URL back Sometimes you might find a great web page with lots of information but this web page seems to be from a folder and then another folder and you would like to see if there is anymore information you can retrieve. This is where you can trim back the URL taking off one section at a time to where it takes you. Here you may find some more relevant information.

3.1.4. Net 4: Look for similar pages If you find a web page you like you can then use google advance to find similar pages on that topic. By typing in the URL of your page google advance will look for similar web pages on that topic.

3.2. Validity: Ensure students understand that you cannot believe everything you read. Encourage them to make their own judgement by checking more than one source if they’re not sure.

3.3. Delve: Look beyond the first few searches that come up. Just because they are the first to come up doesn't mean they are the most useful!

3.4. Start with some websites you already know that are safe

3.5. Each search engine searches a bit differently so make sure you read the help files located on each search engine's Web site.

3.6. You more than one search engine
