Internet Literacy Handbook

I don't think I've blogged something I noticed in the UKeiG newsletter as part of the current awareness section:
Richardson, J et al (Eds) (2008) The Internet Literacy Handbook. 3rd Ed. Council of Europe. http://www.coe.int/t/dghl/

There are 2 online formats (free) and a printed version. It is aimed particularly at parents or others working with children and consists of a series of "factsheets" which describe some basics and also talk about dangers and safeguards. The topics covered include:Getting connected; Setting up websites; Searching for information; Chat; World-wide libraries; Music and images on the Internet; Distance learning; Privacy; Bullying and harassment; Shopping online; Becoming an active e-citizen; Mobile technology; Social networking;e-Democracy.
