About These Resources

Internet Safety refers to the various issues facing students due to the widespread use of the Internet in today’s society, and the need for common practices to keep children and all users safe. Therefore, it is important to provide standards-based instruction on using the Internet at the local level, and a foundational component of such instruction is an alignment of Learning Standards to the principles and practices of Internet Safe Usage. The recent passage of the New York State Education Law on Internet Safety and Appropriate Use (Education Law Section 814) empowers the New York State Education Department to provide assistance and resources to schools concerning the safe and responsible use of the Internet.

The Office of Educational Design and Technology has aligned the New York State Learning Standards at the elementary, intermediate, and commencement levels to include components of Internet Safe Usage in all standard areas. An alignment has also been completed between the Common Core State Standards, the ISTE National Education Technology Standards for Students (NET_S), and the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) Standards for the 21st Century Learner. These alignments can assist school administrators and educators with Internet Safety teaching and learning across a standards-based curriculum.
