Mr. Steed's 6th Grade Computer Class Blog
A Blog of my students daily thoughts about a different technology subject

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

Recent studies have shown that kids are posting too much sensitive information online.  Many parents believe that kids are not thinking about what they say before they post it online.  Also, the pictures are too revealing and too much swearing is being shared.  Many parents are completely unaware of what kids have on their pages or what type of posts their kids make on a daily basis.

A)  If you REFLECT on social networking, Why do you think kids share so much information with complete strangers online? 

B)   Social networking such as party lines and chat rooms have been around for 20 years, so how have advances in technology changed and made sites like Facebook and Myspace more interesting now?”

C)  Do you believe there is a line that shouldn’t be crossed when it comes to pictures and things said online on sites like Facebook or Myspace?   What is that line?

D)  Even though kids have been told about the number of cyber predators online, why do you think kids still put so much personal information online for everyone to see?
