Designed for Boys and Girls Clubs, this training kit provides a child Internet safety program that is divided into three age-appropriate levels on four CD-ROMs. The NetSmartz Internet Safety Program includes Clicky's Web World for 6-7 year-olds, NetSmartz for 8-12 year-olds, and I-360 for 13-18 year-olds. The CD-ROMs include interactive program content, games, and activities that reinforce the need for Internet safety. The program is designed to educate both children and adults on how to recognize dangerous situations online and what to do when they occur. A key component of the program is encouraging honest communication within Boys and Girls Clubs and families about the activities of children and teens on the Web. A facilitator's guide contains materials to help Boys and Girls Club professionals teach members about Internet safety using the NetSmartz CD-ROMs. Session plans are provided for the four sessions of Clicky's Web World, the nine sessions of NetSmartz, and the 3 modules of I-360. Each plan includes key points covered in the session, discussion questions, a brief description of the CD activity, follow-up discussion questions, and follow-up activities. An appendix includes Internet safety information for parents and guardians in English and Spanish and answer keys. Additional promotional materials is included, along with a NetSmartz preview CD-ROM. Clicky's Web World and NetSmartz CD-ROMs include versions with Spanish Audio, as well as English or Spanish captions.
