Private Today, Public Tomorrow (9-12)
Students reflect on their responsibility to protect the privacy of others when posting information about them online. Students read a true story about the unintended consequences of sharing a compromising photo, and then they consider how this situation might be different if someone else shared the photo. Next, students brainstorm questions they should ask themselves before posting and tagging photos, videos, or any information about others online, and create a decision tree to guide them through future choices.
Students will be able to ...
- consider the possible benefits and risks of sharing information online.
- recognize the importance of context in posting or viewing online images.
- understand what choices they need to make to protect the privacy of others online.
