Be Web Aware is a national, bilingual public education program on Internet safety. The objective of everyone involved in this project is to ensure young Canadians benefit from the Internet, while being safe and responsible in their online activities.
The goal of the Be Web Aware initiative is two-fold:
Raise awareness amongst parents that there are safety issues when their children go online and that they need to get involved.
Provide practical information and tools that will equip parents to effectively manage Internet use in the home and to teach their kids to be Web savvy.
In keeping with the Province's Literacy with ICT Contimuum and efforts to teach and model responsible and ethical use of the internet to our students, images on this web page are Creative Commons licensed images from Flickr attributed to the following:
