Title: Computer Science Fundamentals Unit 6 Course E Lesson 12: Private and Personal Information (2018)
URL: https://curriculum.code.org/csf-18/coursee/12/
Description:

Developed by Common Sense Education, this lesson is about the difference between information that is safe to share online and information that is not.

As students visit sites that request information about their identities, they learn to adopt a critical inquiry process that empowers them to protect themselves and their families from identity theft. In this lesson, students learn to think critically about the user information that some websites request or require. They learn the difference between private information and personal information, as well as how to distinguish what is safe or unsafe to share online.

Common Sense Education has created this lesson to teach kids the importance of security on the internet. By discussing the difference between personal and private information, students will be able to recognize what information should and shouldn't be shared. Students will also learn what signs you should look for to determine if a website is safe or not.

Students will be able to:
- learn about the benefits and risks of sharing information online.
- understand what type of information can put them at risk for identity theft and other scams.
