Web Wise Kids provides fun and educational games to help E-Rate schools comply

Santa Ana, CA—Federal legislation signed into law in October 2008 requires schools receiving E-Rate discounts on telecommunication services and internet access to make available online safety education for their students by July 1, 2012. These new laws focus on online behaviors including cyber bullying, responses to potential internet predators, and interactions on social networking web sites.

Web Wise Kids’ comprehensive approach to internet safety through games/programs and training can help schools prepare to meet the requirement.

Schools needing to comply can visit the CyberCops Series School Kit or MISSING School Kit pages on the Web Wise Kids site. Along with the three games, schools will receive a training manual and consulting through scheduled webinars for a one-time cost of $995.00.

For almost a decade, Web Wise Kids (WWK), a national nonprofit organization, has delivered a proven, research-based approach to Internet safety education that can help schools in our area effectively meet this new requirement.

In response to alarming and current statistics on inappropriate Internet behavior, Web Wise Kids’ award-winning, highly interactive games offer a positive, preventive, and proactive way to collaboratively engage youth, emotionally and cognitively. These games, based on real life situations, are distributed primarily through training sessions for local school personnel facilitated by WWK trainers.
