The internet offers a vast range of educational resources for students. Teachers are in a perfect position to help students develop appropriate web-usage habits and emphasise the importance of privacy protection.
Incorporating messages about privacy protection into lessons can reinforce positive choices when students are interacting online.
Discussing topics such as website privacy policies, social networking, cyber-bullying, online gaming and chatting online gives students an opportunity to consider how such interactions can put their privacy at risk.
