NetAlert - Keeping your kids safe online

With ICT options growing at an amazing rate, parents and indeed schools need to keep up with how their children use technology. Are they online doing research, or just playing games?

NetAlert is the Australian Government's not-for-profit organisation that aims to promote a safer internet experience for children and their families. In Learning Works this week, Tony Ryan speaks with Net Alert's Greg Gebhart, about internet safety and about a series of workshops now being run around Australia.
