Prensky coned the term ‘Digital Natives’ and described this new generation and for him we were the digital immigrants. Yet, the digital immigrants are the ones who will help these digital natives to stay safe on the net. In this session I will talk about the e-safety project we started with our high school students to raise awareness of the dangers waiting for them and the younger ones on the net.
