In technology, we are discussing what is okay to share on social networking sites and what is best left private. By show of hands, a majority of 7th graders were displaying their age, location, and gender on social sites, which may leave them exposed to predators. We discussed adding friends – what constitutes a “friend” versus a stranger. The use of privacy settings were stressed, but more importantly, we agreed that is best to not post what we don’t want visible.
Please review the link labeled “Safe Guard Your Child Online” from a government sponsored program focused on protecting safety online. Then, discuss and reinforce its importance at home.
