Alberta offers online course for protecting kids on the Internet

CALGARY — The Alberta government is offering an online course to teach parents about the risks children may face on the Internet.

The course, called Internet Savvy, focuses on cyber bullying, social networking, online marketing to children and youth, gaming and sexual exploitation.

Human Services Minister Dave Hancock says young people’s constant access to social media can make it difficult for parents to protect and support their kids.

Potentially risky behaviours include sharing personal information, emailing or posting photos online, talking online with strangers and visiting adult websites.
