UK - Internet safety for children targeted

Lessons in using the internet safely are set to become a compulsory part of the curriculum for primary schoolchildren in England from 2011. The lessons are one element of a new government strategy being unveiled called "Click Clever, Click Safe". Children will also be encouraged to follow an online "Green Cross Code" and block and report inappropriate content. The measures have been drawn up by the UK Council on Child Internet Safety, a new body comprising 140 organisations. see Click Clever Click Safe: The First Child Internet Safety Strategy. see also Son's Rogue Tweet Taught Brown A Lesson (Sky News).
