Don’t share too much information, only play online games with people you know and let an adult know if someone is making strange comments to you online. These are some of the tips Garrard County High School Student Technology Leadership Program students shared with Beth Trimble’s 4th-grade class at Lancaster Elementary School (Garrard County).

The STLP students conduct Internet safety training with all three elementary schools in the district, visiting as many grade levels as they can. Each training session lasts about a half an hour.

“This helps our high school students improve their leadership skills and gives the elementary students valuable information to stay safe while using personal devices, on the internet or gaming. The elementary students enjoy having high school students in the classroom.  It also helps teachers cover part of the curriculum in technology,” said STLP advisor Virginia Thomas.
