Become TELUS WISE about Smartphone and Internet Safety

TELUS WISE stands for Wise Internet and Smartphone Education, which is an educational program about the Internet and Smartphone safety.  The content of TELUS WISE has been developed in partnership with MediaSmarts and other industry experts, as there is a steady growth of smartphone and Internet use by children and teens. As an organization, their motive is to keep our children safe from online criminal activity i.e. financial fraud and child predators.

This TELUS WISE free program is currently open to TELUS business customers, their employees and families. Hopefully it will be open to the public soon.  This program includes...
  • In-person training and seminars for parents and anyone wanting to learn how to keep children and teens safe when using the Internet.  These interactive seminars are one hour in length and led by certified TELUS team members at office location(s) across Canada. 
  • WISE virtual community offers a wealth of training, tips and tools on Internet and Smartphone safety.
During the December holidays many of you may have stumbled across a letter written by a mom to her 13 year old son that had 18 ground rules of using the cellphone. When I first read the letter, I thought that the letter was well written and thoughtfully said so children can understand it.  Here is a link to the ground rules letter that is re-blogged by TELUS.
