The importance of students being aware of what they share on social media websites. Obviously, pictures are the most shared digital content on such platforms.

Computer Safety for Kids & Teens

Computer Safety for Kids & Teens | Safety online | Scoop.it

By Emma Kavanagh

 

The Internet provides us with an abundant amount of educational information, entertainment, and can connect us with people throughout the entire world. As wonderful as the Internet can be, it can also be a dangerous place for children and teens. When using the Internet, one must be careful about sharing any form of personal information because unfortunately the Internet can be a platform for cyber criminals to target kids, teens, and young adults. The most common types of criminals found on the web include (online predators), identity thieves, cyberbullies, and hackers. In order to protect your children and loved to the fullest extent one must take all the necessary precautions when using a computer.
