The best assessment of the L.E.A.R.N. unit is for teachers to simply watch and supervise students when online in the classroom. Make sure to give positive feedback to students who demonstrate good judgment on the Web. Share specific examples of how some of your students manifest good decision-making while in cyberspace.
Also, make sure to discuss the L.E.A.R.N. campaign throughout the school year. Administer mini-lessons whenever the opportunity arises, and encourage parents to do the same (especially during the summer months when they are not in school). Revisit these topics on a regular basis and test the kids' memories to ensure they don't forget the importance of Language, E-mail/Chat, Awareness, Research and Netiquette.

"My kids relate well to your Super Cyber Heroes approach,
enjoying the intellectual property that runs through your site.
Great characters, stories and appearance makes learning fun,
makes a lasting impression, and keeps the attention of youngsters
at the formidable stage of their computer education."
DEBRA B. (FL)
"I've been using Cyberspacers' L.E.A.R.N. program
in the classroom for the last four quarters, and plan
to continue utilizing it. Yours is a most unique and
positive way of presenting difficult issues. Cyberspacers
makes it easy for students to understand the complexities,
the pluses and minuses of the Internet. You are right...
teaching them to accept responsibility for their own
(online) behavior is the way to go!"
BETH S. (CA)
"Your Web site is a heaven-sent for me and my students.
With the idea that all computers are magic, or at least
that you can accomplish magical things with them makes
quite a significant impact here because it is something kids
can understand. Thanks! And keep up the good work."
ROBERT S. (FL)
"Students request your Web site by name, and ask to
Take the Oath, and Join the Team to become 'official
Cyberspacers'. Your classy ID Cards and decals have
become something of a rage with the 'in' crowd at our school."
JEFF S. (CA)
"Thank you for turning computer ethics into a fun and exciting exercise.
Not an easy thing to do, but the content on CyberSpacers gets an A+."
