A great post from Sean The Bass Player.
He starts with having a wee go at the Panorama programme last week (which I didn't see so can't comment on, but most of the post is a series of 7 valid, well thought out tips about how to stay safe online.
This is not some aloof educator from the blogosphere or some random teacher (like myself) sounding off but a student who has decided to pass on his advice to others from his own experience of using the web.
I particularly like his advice on why it can be a good idea to use voice and video chat:
...if someone is cool with you seeing what they look like on webcam, or

required gear then they are most likely going to be who they say they
I would like to recommend to any teacher reading this that they pass on Sean's blog address to their students and allow them to read the advice for themselves. I will be cross posting this to my other blogs and passing it on to colleagues.
