January's topic: Internet Awareness/Social Media Decisions

Why do we say Internet Awareness as opposed to Internet Safety?

Using the word "safety" to describe our workshop on the internet implies that the internet is safe. I want to be clear that you can be smart on the internet but keeping safe is your responsibility. Being aware is the most you can do, following the rules you have learned at school and the ones your parents put in place is a part of the responsibility you need to follow to be smart on the internet. Safety is not guaranteed.
