About Student Privacy

The Youth and Media team at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University have released curricular materials for the first through third grade level on digital privacy and safe Internet use: The Internet and You: Curricular Materials for Educators Grades 1-3. Featuring Ruff Ruffman: Humble Media Genius from PBS, The Internet and You provides interactive lesson plans and worksheets that help young learners “explore what kinds of information should be kept ‘private,’ as well as consider what kinds of situations might involve their parents or other important people in their lives.” Though this material is targeting kids younger than those of the population of the YPP Action Frame, it echoes the core issues important for self-protection. Early conditioning can do good!
