How do YOU Stay Safe Online?

The Internet can be a wonderful resource and provides many learning opportunities. We use it to research information, communicate with others, play interactive games, create sensational presentations, share ideas and much more. We are able to literally access the world.
As we do this, we leave a trail called a digital footprint, which is shaped by every place we visit on the web.
In order to learn and benefit from these opportunities it is important to learn web netiquette (good web manners), make good decisions and practise online safety.
