Internet Safety for kids Grade K – 3 8 minutes
Internet safety for kids is a topic getting much attention because children are being exposed to the Internet at a younger and younger age. IUP Communications Media professor Erick Lauber and his student production team at IUP’s Digital Media Institute recently produced this video on Internet safety for kids for the Indiana Area School District. It is currently used as part of the in-school training for students in kindergarten through third grade.
Keeping Kids Safe on the Internet is a film retelling the fable of “The Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing.”
The animation teaches children that people online may not be who they seem. Funded by a
Merit Grant from The Ferris Foundation, the project is intended to instill behaviors in children
that will help prevent them from becoming victims of cyber predators. Students in Assistant
Professor of Social Work Elizabeth Post’s class wrote the film’s script. Members of the Alpha
Psi Omega Theater Honor Society provided voiceovers. A team from the Music and
Entertainment Business program, led by Assistant Professor Paul Kwant, is providing the film’s
musical score, and Sports Entertainment Hospitality Management Adjunct Instructor and
university Coalition Against Slavery co-chair Karen Kiio provided operational assistance.

All kids count: Internet Safety Episode Grades 5, 6, 7, 8 15 minutes
“All Kids Count” (www.allkidscount.net) was initially funded by the U.S. Department of Justice through two congressionally mandated grants, and the active support of America’s leading groups in law enforcement and education. Its purpose is to educate children, as well as parents/guardians, on the critical issues of internet safety, targeted school violence, and other important safety topics. Internet Safety is one of three episodes of AKC Film Series #1, targeted for ages 9 and up. What distinguishes “All Kids Count” from traditional child-safety programs is that there are no authority figures instructing kids on the “rules” or how to behave. Rather, the critical information is conveyed in an “infotainment” style, where the viewer watches young people interact and experiences their adventures.
Internet Safety Tips for Teens Grades 9, 10, 11, 12 – Helpful and Funny 6 minutes
Teens today live a huge portion of their lives online. In fact, according to a study from Pew Research Center, 92 percent of teens report going online daily—including 24 percent who say they go online “almost constantly.” Why so much online activity? The accessibility of smartphones, of course. Fully 91 percent of teens go online from mobile devices at least occasionally. Among these “mobile teens,” 94 percent go online daily or more often. That’s a lot of time spent looking at a screen. Just like you want your teen to stay safe in school and at the mall, you need to be sure they’re being smart about how they handle themselves online.
