Connect[ED] is a free online resource addressing Internet safety for students in Grades 4-6.
Originally developed and released in 2011 as a website, reallifeonline.ca, and DVD, it has been updated to align with the revised 2015 Health and Physical Education Curriculum and incorporated into Ophea’s Teaching Tools. 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 students apply real life behaviour to life online.
This resource is also available in French as BranchÉ.
Connect[ED] was made possible thanks to generous funding support from the Ontario Ministry of Education.
