Data Privacy day is an annual event to remind consumers about the important of review, protecting, and managing their online information.
Data privacy day will take place on January 28, 2020.
Students AND adults would be wise to review their digital footprint 2-3 times a year. This regular maintenance will prevent unauthorized access to personal information and lesson the risk of identity theft.
These 10 data privacy lessons can be used and combined to teach students about their digital footprint and introduce them to tools they can use to control their personal information.
Google’s Applied Digital Skills curriculum is a data base of ready-to-go lesson complete with teacher guides, student templates, rubrics, and sample projects. The ADS curriculum is ideal for students in upper elementary through high school.
There are more than 100 lessons available. Here are four data privacy lessons:
Gamify digital citizenship by inviting your students to visit “interland” to learn about internet safety. The Be Internet Awesome curriculum is ideal for elementary and middle school students.
Tip: Iterland features four “islands” that teach internet safety principles. “Tower of Treasure” is what I would recommend for teaching students how to secure their digital information.
Common Sense Media is a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating teachers, parents, and students on the responsible use of technology in society. CSM has created a very robust selection of lesson on digital citizenship, including an section with data privacy lessons. The lessons can be sorted by grade level with options for young learners all the way up through high school.
This choice board contains 10 different security tasks that will help you review and secure your digital information. This activity is design for high school students or adults who have Google, Facebook, Snapchat, and other social media accounts.
This choice board was created using Google Docs which makes it easy to assign to students using Google Classroom. I recomend that you include a reflection activity to provide students a change to share what they learned and discovered as they reviewed their digital information.
