ConnectED - real life online

Ontario Ministry of Education

Developped with funding by the Ontario Ministry of Education, Connect[ED] is a billingual resource that addresses Internet safety for students in Grades 4-6. It is designed to help students develop safe and healthy online behaviours, such as netiquette, security, personal privacy and relationships (e.g., recognizing and managing cyberbullying), in the same way they would in real life situations. It helps children apply real life behaviour to life online.


Connect[ED] is a web-based resource that includes the following materials:


-A 20-30 minute video for each of Grades 4, 5 and 6, that combines animation with exciting and informative live action


-Teacher lesson plans (with links to the Ontario curriculum - Saskatchewan curriculum connections would need to be made)


-Take home lessons for students to complete with their parent/guardian


-A teacher resource section -A parent resource section


-Additional online supports to help enhance student learning and support both educators and parents
