Privacy Rules (3-5)
Students learn that children’s websites must protect their private information. They learn to identify these secure sites by looking for their privacy policies and privacy seals of approval. Students discuss a scenario in which their private information is shared without their permission. They then learn about private information and privacy laws regulating kids’ websites. Using the Privacy Checklist Student Handout, students explore the privacy policies on kids’ websites.
Students will be able to ...
- learn which information they should avoid sharing online because it is private.
- understand which kinds of websites have privacy policies, and why.
- practice checking websites they visit for privacy policies and privacy seals of approvals.
