Introduction to topic: Internet Basics


This topic is one that I need a lot of assistance in. I have a very basic understanding of how it works and can access the web to find information that I need but would like to become more proficient in this area so that I do not spend a lot of time unnecessarily. This Wikki space is created for me so the information presented in this topic is for me personally and has been created with this in mind.

Using the information provided by Professor Quinn, I found the following web site a good starting place in my pursuit of learning more about Web searches.

As I continue in my pursuit to learn about the internet basics, a very important concern is keeping my children safe while allowing them to use the internet.
