Internet Safety with faux pas the techno cat
Students of all ages need to understand that it is important to not give out personal information on the internet. Now, more than ever, children MUST be reminded because chat boxes appear in a lot of "games" that kids are playing online. This social aspect is very common in games and it is here that kids are most vulnerable. They are reminded to not give out school info, parent info, neighborhood info etc along with the usual name, address, phone number, age..This video highlights the fact the one never knows who is on the other side of the computer screen.
