Budd:e's Interactive Cyber Safety Program

Budd:e, an interactive e-security "game" from Australia, is a great tool to add to your online safety toolbag for students.  It offers both  primary and secondary versions.  It is not a tutorial itself, but rather tests students' knowledge of appropriate ways to ensure their online safety.

Primary students build a "Budd:e" by answering questions related to, for example, digital citizenship and cyber-safety. Secondary students run through a series of real-life scenarios (you've received a message from an unknown person on Facebook asking for pictures) and choose appropriate responses to deal with the situation.

UPDATE: Yikes!  I just realized I forgot to include the link.  My apologies!
