It's important to stop and think before you post something online. Thinking about these things can help us decide if it's something we should be posting:
- Am I sharing personal or private information?
- Am I bullying or will it hurt someone's feelings?
- Will I regret posting it later on?
- Is it ok if my parents and teacher see it?
For Secondary Schools:
Sometimes we post things online, and later regret it. Being selective about what you post and make public is an important part of living responsibly in a digital age. If the post is questionable or you think you may regret doing it later on, just don't do it! Brittney is a 14 year old girl who posted something she later regretted. Please watch this clip with your students and have a short discussion on how things we post may affect us in the future.
