Addressing the Challenges of a Digitally
Connected Classroom

The digital age has transformed virtually every aspect in the way we live, work, play, and learn. Today, teachers blend in-class instruction with online learning using websites, apps, learning games, among other tools. Children get instant access to knowledge beyond their textbooks to obtain a holistic view of a subject. However, the digitally connected classroom also presents major challenges and threats when students are online, such as:

children getting online exposure to inappropriate content

Inappropriate Content

Potential exposure to offensive, harmful, or inappropriate website content

children getting online exposure to cyber bullying

Cyberbullying

Possible risk of cyberbullying through social networks

children can leak personal information through phishing websites

Phishing

Unintentional leak of personal information through phishing websites

Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA)

According to Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) in the U.S., schools and libraries subject to this law are responsible for implementing an internet safety policy. A key provision safeguards children from inappropriate content on all computers and when using email, chat rooms, and other electronic communications. CIPA also requires schools to educate students on proper online behavior and cyberbullying awareness and response.
