How to help children build a positive presence online

Students use laptop computers during class in a school in Kaliningrad February 18, 2008. Dmitry Medvedev, the man almost certain to be elected as Russia's new president next weekend, has for the past two years been overseeing four "national projects" to reform healthcare, education, housing and agriculture. The projects are the biggest political undertaking the technocrat Medvedev has had to handle to date, and his management of them gives an insight into how he will perform when he takes over from his mentor Vladimir Putin as president. Kaliningrad, which was annexed from Germany at the end of World War Two, is precisely the sort of place the national projects set out to help. Picture taken February 18, 2008.
