Are you a parent with children who use the Internet? Do your children have a better understanding of this new and constantly changing technology? Have your children ever texted “fts” or told you to “bma” in an online message ? I sure hope not!
If you have children, I’d encourage you to visit the Internet 101 website, which provides some great information to increase your computer knowledge. The site provides excellent resources including Tutorials to help you learn more about the online world, Technical Tips to help keep your computer secure, Chat Lingo to help you learn the online lingo, Popular Online Activities to expose you to what today’s youth are doing online, and an Internet Agreement to be signed between parents and children to help your family stay safe in the online world.
Even if you don’t have children, there is some valuable information on the site worth reading.
