(November 19, 2014) Bright House Networks and Net Literacy have partnered together to increase Internet safety awareness throughout central Indiana for the last six years. Together, they have produced 42 safety public service announcement that discuss topics ranging from bullying to privacy and from hate websites to net reputation.
This year, Bright House Networks and Net Literacy invited students attending Indianapolis Public Schools, Zionsville Community Schools, and Carmel Clay Schools to write a paragraph about the best online safety advice that they’d give to their friends and younger siblings. The most helpful responses were fashioned into television scripts and the students submitting them stared in their own public safety announcement that would be carried on television. From the hundreds of responses that were received, eight students were selected and and were taped in a television studio today.
“What’s really cool about this,” said Daniel Kent, Executive Director of Net Literacy, “is that Bright House Networks has given teens the opportunity to be youth heros and be seen in a positive light as they discuss tough issues that impact teens. Hundreds of thousands of individuals who have seen the PSAs on television and on the web.”
These videos will begin running in February or March and will run on Bright House Networks.
