This lesson was made possible with financial support from the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada.
This lesson makes students aware of online privacy issues, primarily those relating to giving out personal information on social networking sites such as Facebook. Students will learn to assess the various types of information they provide in Facebook profiles, along with the different levels of access. They will examine the potential risks and consequences of posting personal information on the Internet, and become more aware of how to protect their privacy.
This lesson and all associated documents (handouts, overheads, backgrounders) are available in an easy-print, pdf kit version.
