I am building an Internet Security lesson. Is anyone aware of online games that teach lessons about spam, spyware, etc.? Would welcome ideas that support grades 5 thru 12. Objective is to have HS students create an Internet Security wiki page(s).

 

Thank you.

I teach Digital Citizenship to Intermediate students.  There are great resources located on this live binder at http://livebinders.com/play/play_or_edit?id=19692.  Also, http://commoncraft.com has some great videos explaining phishing schemes, secure passwords, etc.

I love the CommonCraft Phishing video.  It is very easy to understand. I use some of these games below when discussing Internet Safety in my 6th Grade Computer Class.  We talk Internet Safety every Wednesday. I could share many more later, but I have to go through my bookmarks.  I have really focused on Internet Safety the last few years and have amassed hundreds of websites and resources.  Your question is going to help me get more organized.

 

I tried to simply include sites that have games (per your request), and not sites that have JUST resources and information.

Thank you. Great stuff.

Feel free to go to my web site and browse the resources I have found.  Click on the link below and go to "Computers" followed by "Internet Safety".

Great question. We all need this lesson for our classes.

I recommend this site.  It has dozens of articles on current security issues.  http://www.theregister.co.uk/security/
