Overview:

Games, social media, and other online spaces give kids opportunities to meet and chat with others outside the confines of their real-life communities. But how well do kids actually know the people they're meeting and interacting with? Help students consider whom they're talking to and the types of information they're sharing online.

Students will be able to:

  • Analyze how well they know the people they interact with online.
  • Reflect on what information is safe to share with different types of online friends.
  • Learn to recognize red flag feelings and how to respond to them.
