ConnectSafely & ECMECC

ECMECC is excited to partner with ConnectSafely to provide teachers in our districts with content and lesson plans to help students to responsibly and safely use Generative AI (middle school & high school) or about Digital Wellbeing (elementary).

Teachers: Please Register!!!

Teachers, you can see the resources on this page, but in order to view and download them, you must register with the Google Form. Upon completing the 30 second registration, you will receive a document which you can use to choose the resources that will work best for your class(es).

What is Safer Internet Day?

This video from ConnectSafely's Education Director, Kerry Gallagher, introduces Safer Internet day. As a group of schools, we decided this year to emphasize the topic of Scams, Predators, and Creeps, which allows us to use content from our partnerships with both ConnectSafely and InfosecIQ. It is our hope that these lessons and videos are used to help our kids stay safe online and in their digital interactions.

Internet Safety Training

These Lessons and Trainings will meet the E-Rate Requirement of providing Internet Safety Training to Students.
