i-SAFE

In an effort to increase awareness of Internet safety, staff members are being asked to go through a training program which addresses numerous areas concerning web use. The training is self-paced and can be done anywhere there is Internet access. To get started, set up an appointment with me (dsilva@fallriverschools.org) to go over the how-to's of the training and from there, go about the online training at your convenience.

Upon completion of the training, you will receive a certificate, which you can pass in to the Tech Support office for 10 PDPs. Teachers who become certified will then have access to instructional materials that can be used to integrate into their instructional lessons.
