Earn your Cyber Chip
From Boys Life Magazine, Aaron Derr reporting
No matter how old you are or how often you use the Internet, it pays to be safe (and smart) online.
Scouts who earn the BSA’s new Cyber Chip will be able to practice safer online behaviors and advise others on issues such as cyberbullying and scams.
The BSA teamed up with NetSmartz, part of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, to come up with some useful advice on using the Internet.
Go to NetSmartz’s BSA homepage and click on your grade level to learn what you need to know, and to earn the Cyber Chip in the process.
[Dan’s note: This is different than the Tech Chip program I wrote about 2 years ago. It is very similar to what is required for the US Scouting Service Project’s Internet Scout Patch.]
