Privacy and Internet Life - resources and contest

Resources for teachers
Young people today are sophisticated users of the Internet, using this medium with ease and enthusiasm. While the opportunities are tremendous, we want to ensure that they understand the impact that these technologies can have on their privacy, and provide them with tools and information they need to make smart decisions.

This is why we developed a video contest and teaching lessons to encourage young people to learn how to build a secure online identity so they don't put themselves at risk.

You can learn all about this contest on via this 'mycontest' link.

We also have two teaching lessons, developed by the Media Awareness Network (MNet), which will enable you to engage students in thinking about and discussing privacy issues.

Privacy and Online Life for grades 7 and 8.
The Privacy Dilemma for grades 9 to 12.
