CA - Ontario adds Internet safety to elementary curriculum

(The Canadian Press)
Ontario is changing the school curriculum to include Internet safety lessons. The Liberal government has approved changes to the health and physical education curriculum for elementary schools to help children better protect themselves online. Next fall, there will be specific sections in the curriculum for grades 4 and 7 about Internet safety and the potential risks of online activities. There will also be "age appropriate" discussions about online dangers in Grades 1 through 8.
