SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A tech giant has shared with South Dakota middle school students a number of tips to safely use the Internet.

The Argus Leader (https://argusne.ws/1wVUuzi ) reports that representatives from Google have given a presentation to Whittier Middle School students in Sioux Falls. The tips included avoiding Internet scams, making a strong password by mixing numbers, letters and symbols and not sharing it with friends.

The presenters also told students to be careful when sharing personal information online. The class included interactive games and pop quizzes.

The Sioux Falls School District spent $4.7 million last year and another $200,000 this year on Google Chromebooks for all students in grades 3 through 12.

The presentation is part of an educational series that Google has sponsored for the last two years.
