Are You Social Smart?

 

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada has created a graphic novel, Social Smarts: Privacy, the Internet and You, to help young Canadians to better understand and navigate privacy issues in the online world.

 

This 12-page graphic novel is designed to appeal to tweens and younger teens. Developed with feedback from youth, it tells the story of a brother and sister who learn (sometimes the hard way) about the privacy risks related to social networking, mobile devices and texting, and online gaming. The graphic novel includes detailed black and white illustrations so it can be easily reproduced by educators and parents.

 

This resource has been placed in the grades 7-9 webpages of the DigiCitizenship Wiki. As well, while you’re there, be sure to check other related resources! If you have any questions contact Nicole directly or if there are any resources that you’d like to add to this Wiki, feel free to join.
