"It is so important that young people know how to navigate and use the Internet safely," noted Senator Martins.  "Today's digital world plays a key role in a student's life, and the Internet can indeed be a wonderful resource for students of all ages if used responsibly.  I applaud Cablevision for its Power to Learn initiative, which equips students with the knowledge and resources necessary to safely use the Internet and understand the importance of treating others online with respect."

"Thanks to Cablevision's Internet Smarts program, our students  have become more responsible in their Internet use," said Principal Nolan.  "They are more confident when interacting with others online and I believe each student came away with a better sense of what constitutes appropriate Internet behavior."
