KIDS, PARENTS, TEACHERS ONLINE COURSE
Data protection at the kid, parent, or teacher level is different than data protection at the school level.
There are no laws or regulations for people to follow.
The internet is vast making it almost impossible to understand well enough to know where your data is going and how it might be used.
TacticalTech and Mozilla have teamed up to create some great guidance. These document are free and based on their expertise.

THE GOOD NEWS
DATA PROTECTION IN EVERYDAY LIFE
Our "presentation of self" online is fast becoming "who we are and who knows us". This persona needs to be treated with as much care as our physical beings.
The good news -- individuals are actually in the driver’s seat in protecting their data, and their online persona. We can't get off the grid. Instead, our goal is to get ourselves 80% of the way there.
As individuals, we can take care of our own data protection and not wait for someone else to do it for us.
FOUR SIMPLE CONCEPTS TO FOLLOW,
TO PRACTICE OVER AND OVER
Secure your devices so "they" can't find you (unless you want them to!)
Secure your frequent stops to stop intruders from stealing your identity, your assets and more.
Stay "out of sight" while casually roaming online.
Reflect on your online behavior. Who are you online?
WANT SOME GUIDANCE?
It is definitely more fun to join a class and do "data privacy" with friends or others with the same interests.
Sign up for a live, one week, four-part class -- one hour each day.
Monday -- devices
Tuesday -- sites you frequent often
Wednesday -- sites you don't frequent often
Thursday -- how you present yourself
Friday -- specific vendors
Google, Facebook and many other apps are tracking you constantly and . . . they make it almost impossible to find out how to turn the tracking off.
New tips about vendors and how to avoid being tracked will be added as found.
Many of us are concerned about a variety of aspects of using the internet. Misleading information, lies, AI scams, things we don't want our kids exposed to are all rampant on the web.
Many are also stepping up to the plate to help us all navigate this new world we are in.
It is not just about data privacy!!!
