Sharing information about yourself can be a natural and healthy activity as it leads to
positive connections and personal growth. However, oversharing can present real
safety risks. As our students with 1:1 TechforEd devices utilize more online platforms
to build content mastery, their need for understanding privacy and the impact of
sharing information online increases.
During the month of December, our fifth and ninth grade classrooms will engage in
digital citizenship learning related to Privacy & Security
. These lessons will introduce
students to the concept of online privacy and the potential implications of sharing
private information with friends, the public, app providers, and more.
At home you can support your students in understanding Privacy & Security in a
variety of ways. With young children, you can compare online with real-life scenarios
where private information should not be shared (like interacting with a stranger in a
store). With older children, you can talk about encountering clickbait, setting up
strong passwords, and messaging with people online.
Monthly Motto: We care about everyone’s privacy.
