Editorial Reviews

Aimee M. Bissonette
"Willard provides the reader with a critical understanding of why we need a more effective approach to teaching teens about Internet safety and citizenship. The guidelines and strategies she describes make the reader believe that implementation of a more effective, Cyber Savvy approach is not only feasible, but easily accomplished. "
Christopher Wells
"This book's approach isboth interesting and outside the common tactics used by many schools to address cyber-citizenship issues. Instead of issuing mass edicts for school districts that will 'protect' students and staff by preventing access to valuable online information, Nancy Willard has developed a balanced methodology around making wiser choices and stronger long-term decisions."
Jason Ohler

“As the clear, informed, expert voice on cyberbullying, Nancy Willard shows how to make informed decisions that reflect reality. Her work is inspiring and extremely important to the national debate about digital citizenship.”

District Administration Magazine, March 2012 - Courtney Williams
"This book will help educators teach their students media literacy, safety, and 'netiquette.' Willard's expertise in risk prevention, law and education provides educators with the tools fo build an effective program for teaching students online safety and citizenship."
Library Media Connection, August 2012 - Sara Marcus
"This well-researched and documented book is laid out for easy reading and understanding of often complex materials and sensitive subjects."
