8.Traveling with the Help of Cyberspace
One of the most-used functions of the Internet is making travel arrange-ments. Try the following:
Find and print out a map for a family or group trip.
Get information about places you would like to visit.
Get information about nearby areas good for day trips.Hint: Use a search engine such as Google.com, Yahoo.com, or any listedpreviously. Put key words into quotes, such as making "travel" into "travelOregon" or "travel Oregon coast" to narrow it down. If you wanted to go to amuseum for a day and you lived in Philadelphia, you could use "Philadelphiamuseum." Or you could list "Philadelphia" first, then you could search your results after they come up, using the word "museum."BEWARE! Always read the description of the web site and at the addressBEFORE deciding whether to open the page in your browser. Sometimespeople misrepresent their web sites by using words that you might besearching for. Close any site that makes you uncomfortable if you open it bymistake.Location(s) I searched for: _____________________________________________________________  _____________________________________________________________  _____________________________________________________________  _____________________________________________________________  _____________________________________________________________  _____________________________________________________________  _____________________________________________________________  _____________________________________________________________  _____________________________________________________________  _____________________________________________________________ 
1.Safety On the Web
Talk about the safety precautions you need to take when using the Internetwith a parent, guardian, or Girl Scout troop or group leader.Sign the Internet Safety Pledge below. Make sure you put a copy nearbywhenever you go online and follow the rules in the pledge.
Internet Safety Pledge
Traveling through cyberspace can be fun, but like any trip you take you have to ìBePreparedî for unforeseen things. So, read this before you go anyfurther. Then print this page out and discuss it with your parent or guardian.
I will not give out personal information such as my address, telephonenumber, parents’/guardians’work address/telephone number, or the nameand location of my school without my parents’/guardians’permission. I willtell an adult right away if I come across any information that makes me feeluncomfortable. I will never agree to get together with someone I “meet”online without first checking with my parents/guardians. If my parents/guardians agree to the meeting, I will be sure that it is in a public place andbring my parent or guardian along.I will never send a person my picture or anything else without first checkingwith my parents/guardians. I will not respond to any messages that are meanor in any way make me feel uncomfortable. It is not my fault if I get amessage like that. If I do I will tell my parents/guardians right away so thatthey can contact the online service.I will talk with my parents/guardians so that we can set up rules for goingonline. We will decide upon the time of day that I can be online, the length of time I can be online, and appropriate areas for me to visit. I will not accessother areas or break these rules without their permission.Girl Name __________________________ Date __________ Parent/Guardian _____________________ Date __________

2.Email Savvy
Email is short for electronic mail. It is the perfect blending of a telephone calland letter. That’s because email sends your letter over the phone lines (or via satellite) to your friend.Go online using an Internet service provider. You may have to enter apassword to connect, depending on how the service has been set up.Once you are online, go to the post office or mailbox area. Once there, youshould be able to find a compose mail icon, button, or menu item. Click onwhat you've found. You should see a window for writing and sending your letter.At the top, type in the address of the person you are writing to. Hint: Youneed to have an email address of someone in order to send them email.Note: An email address looks something like this: aname@girlscouts.org.The first part of the address is the online name of the person you are writingto. The second part of the address is usually the name of the group or busi-ness where that person is located. The part after the period tells you moreabout the owners of the name or who is hosting the mailbox. For example:.org means organization; .edu means educational institution; .com meanscommercial business; .gov means government.Type the subject of the letter on the line under the address. Just place your cursor on that area and start typing. Move your cursor down to the letter areaand start typing your letter!Now that you are ready to send your mail—this part is really easy—just useyour mouse to click on the "send" icon or button. Your letter has beenmailed!Note: Do not open or save attachments that strangers send to you.Unfortunately, some people want access to your computer or think it is coolto destroy your files with a computer virus. Always have a virus check pro-gram on your computer—sometimes people do not know that they are send-ing one. If possible, ask someone to show you where this program is on your computer and how it updates to fight new viruses.
Print and bring a copy of the e-mail you sent for proof.
