Understanding Computer Safety

This book looks at the basics of computer safety. It emphasises that once a computer is online, the user is open to dangers of various kinds, so there is a need to keep information private and use secure passwords. It defines digital footprints and online identity, and explains how to tell if a website is safe to visit. It also explains about computer etiquette and cyber bullying. The concepts are illustrated with case studies and examples of searches, and there are do's and don'ts and fact boxes to illustrate the topics covered.

School Library Connection - Rich Parker, Media Specialist, Fox Chapel Elementary School, Germantown, MD

"This quartet of books does a terrific job of explaining how computers work and how we can make them work for us. Each chapter is driven by a central question, and the text is complemented by captioned photographs and diagrams. . . .The book on search and research alone is a valuable addition to the canon of computer books written for young people. Together, the series would be useful for the classroom teacher or interesting for independent reading." - School Library Connection
