Since this would be a new addition to the health curricula across grade levels, I would form a committee of parents, technology education staff, teachers, and possibly students in middle or high school settings, to determine what issues need to be taught. I would also hold meetings for parents alerting them to the dangers that exist when using technology so that they can be aware when students are using technology at home.
Below are some links Technology Safety committees can use when planning lessons to instruct students and parents about safe and healthy technology practices. I have also excerpts of a video teachers can watch with their middle and high school classes about internet safety.
