SINGAPORE - SCHOOLS keen to teach their students how to use the Internet safely can now tap an online primer on what to include in these classes.

Sample lesson plans, quizzes and ready-to-use presentations on topics such as Singapore's cyber laws are now available on a new cyber-wellness portal, B4USurf.

Pronounced 'Before You Surf', the website was launched on Tuesday by software industry watchdog the Business Software Alliance (BSA), the Anglo-Chinese School (Barker Road), the Media Development Authority (MDA) and the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore.

The BSA is funding the site but declined to say how much it cost.

Its regional director Jeffrey Hardee said that, with the growing prevalence of the Internet, teaching youth to recognise right from wrong in the virtual world should not be 'left to chance'.

The public can visit the portal at www.b4usurf.org.
