This very simple little tool allows you to copy a LONG URL (web address), paste it into this web page, and get back a very short URL that fits far more easily on your teacher web page, in your handouts, or on your blackboard for students to enter.

In the Classroom

If you make a map in Google Maps, an online graphic organizer, a set of online flash cards, to anything else that allows you to share my emailing or copying a URL, this tools will save you from endless errors or emails full of ten-line URLs. Be sure to show your middle and high school students how to use it, as well. This will solve the problem of URLs that get split and no longer work when the text wraps around to another line.

This attractive, interactive site includes online movies, complete lesson plans, and activities for teaching all about Internet Safety, for three levels of elementary students: preK-1, 2-3, and 4-5 (click on Learning Resources for the plans). "Episodes" of animated movies with sound and accompanying coloring book pages and activities make it easy to teach each of five lessons for your grade level. The audio and spelling are from new Zealand, so a quick geography lesson could be included for U.S. classrooms! Teach about protecting personal information, who to trust, how to handle uncomfortable situations, and getting help.

NOTE: You MUST disable your pop-up blocker for some portions of the site to work! See Tools>Pop up Blocker Settings to tell the computer to always allow pop-ups from this site. the entire site is done in Flash. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.. This site is resource-rich and really needs a high speed connection and opens fairly slowly. Be patient.

tag(s): internet safety (110), safety (92)

In the Classroom

The "episode" movies are perfect for a projector or interactive whiteboard and are ideally suited for follow-up discussion so students can connect to the content. Anyone can teach about Internet Safety with these free, easy-to-understand lessons. Include parents by sharing the link on your teacher web page or through building or class newsletters. If your building is interested in a comprehensive Internet Safety campaign (such as through the PTA/PTO), share an episode at meeting with parents and students, then encourage everyone to join in Hector's World both at home and school. Everything is ready to go.

This simple site allows you to report bullying at your school. Students, teachers, parents can click to report a bully and turn in a report so school administration can look into the incident. Though there is the potential for bogus reports, this site would likely work well with elementary students or even middle schoolers IF you explained it to them in advance and spoke specifically about the consequences of false reports. The benefit is that the service allows students to report an incident without fear that a bully might "see them in the office."
