Internet Safety Resources

Over the past few weeks we have been taking an ever increasing look at web resources that we can share regarding Internet safety. Here are some of the best ones and a brief description of the contents of each link:

“Finstas,” are "alias" accounts created and used by teens to hide more provocative behavior from parents, educators, and potential future employers. See: http://www.cbc.ca/news/technology/instagram-finsta-rinsta-ramona-pringle-1.4279550

"Vault apps" are apps that appear to be one thing, but actually have a hidden, secret function: https://www.bark.us/blog/find-hidden-apps/

http://www.netsmartz.org is a good resource for internet safety training, especially for younger students.

https://www.commonsensemedia.org/privacy-and-internet-safety and http://www.connectsafely.org are both fantastic resources for students and parents regarding Internet safety.

This website, found on commonsensemedia.org, has done a great job putting together a list of the top 17 apps that students might be involved in: https://www.commonsensemedia.org/blog/16-apps-and-websites-kids-are-heading-to-after-facebook
