The "Technology is Everywhere: Let's Be Safe" video can be viewed at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4iNWm94YlU&t=16s
2nd grade students in the Adair County Primary Center's Student Technology Leadership Program planned, researched, scripted, recorded, and edited this video about internet safety. In the video the students talk about the internet, how internet filters work, protecting your identity online, social media, cyber bullying, and top tips for internet safety. They also created resources to reinforce the content of their video.
