Whether you are a parent, a teacher or a social worker, Cyberwise will certainly be a very useful resource if you have children or students using the Internet. Children and teenagers are using the Internet more and more yet, they don't seem to be aware of the dangers in that world. They are giving out personal information to stranger, something they would never do when they go downtown. The website includes five section: one for children, one for teens, one for parents, one for teachers and one for professionals.

Teens are often more knowledgeable than parents and teachers when it comes to the on-line world. It is necessary for parents and teachers to get to know more the Internet in order to guide children and teens in using the Internet safely. Luring has been a common problem on the Internet, however, recently, cyberbullying has increased in secondary schools. Sometimes, the bullying comes from people they know at school or in their classroom, not from strangers. Teachers need to be aware that some of the bullying in their class may not happen in their classroom or at recess time, but in a virtual world. The website offers many videos that may be used in the classroom to make students think and start discussions.
