We recently had a presentation on Internet safety through our State Attorney General’s Office.
The special agent advised us that there shouldn’t be any info given that could help predators identify where our students live and go to school.
I am just wondering what your opinion is regarding this.
I understand the practicality and reality of using my full name, but I’m worried about how it could link me to my students and, in turn, allow predators to link up to my students.
Anyone could search my name and find out where I teach, what grade I teach, etc. I look forward to hearing your thoughts or directing me to other discussion of this topic. Thanks so much.
And it got me thinking……
There are widely differing opinions on Internet Safety, building digital literacy skills and working with students online.
It would be so much better if we all shared opinions and advice so we could all gain ideas from each other.
We would love to hear your thoughts and advice:
- What advice would you give to educators new to working with students online?
- What advice do you give your students about Internet Safety? How do you educate them on this? What resources do you use?
- How much identifying do you allow (or are you allowed) for yourself and your students?
- What other aspects should we be talking about?
