Computer and Internet Use

   93% of youth are online, 94% of parents (up from 80% in
    2004)

 68% of parents surveyed regulate web content,
  while 55% limit time on the computer (interesting
  note: more parents restrict TV viewing than
  internet content)
 Time spent using digital media by children aged
  13-17 has now surpassed the time they spend
  watching television
It’s the Law!
105 ILCS 5/27-13.3


   2009-2010 school year - grades 3 and
    above - a school district must
    incorporate Internet safety into the
    curriculum
   internet topics include: proper use,
    responsible citizenship, predator
    identification, personal safety, cyber
    security, and copyright laws
not just State
 The Broadband Deployment Act,
 which incorporated the Protecting
 Children in the 21st Century Act,
 requires schools receiving e-Rate
 funds to teach students about
 online safety, cyber bullying, and
 sexual predators.
Why Focus on Internet Safety?

  Today,  8-18 year-olds devote an average of
  7 hours and 38 minutes (7:38) to using
  entertainment media across a typical day
  (more than 53 hours a week). And because
  they spend so much of that time „media
  multitasking‟ (using more than one medium
  at a time), they actually manage to pack a
  total of 10 hours and 45 minutes (10:45)
  worth of media content into those 7½ hours.
                               Kaiser Family Foundation 2010
Is this a problem?
   Nearly three-quarters of teens have an online profile
    on a social networking site, where many teens have
    posted photos of themselves and their friends, among
    other personal information.
   About one in five teens have engaged in sexting –
    sending, receiving, or forwarding sexually suggestive
    nude or nearly nude photos through text message or
    email – and over a third know of a friend who has sent
    or received these kinds of messages.
   Cyberbullying is widespread among today‟s teens,
    with over one-third having experienced it, engaged in
    it, or know of friends who have who have done either.
                         Cox Communications Teen Online & Wireless Safety Survey, 2010
There’s more…
 A study released March 2008 indicated
  that 64% of students admitted to
  plagiarizing from the internet (School Library Journal)




 49% of teens surveyed were not familiar
  with the rules and guidelines for
  downloading content from the Internet
  (music, art, images, etc.)
 57% of those unfamiliar with the laws,
  said downloaders should be punished.
