The Professor Garfield Foundation provides guidance for students, teachers and parents to help protect themselves online. Make sure that children know not to reveal personal information online. Teach students this with the acroymn YAPPY.
Y — Your Full Name
A — Addresses, any home, place where you go or school
P — Phone or cell numbers
P — Passwords, your logins and secret codes
Y — Your Plans, where you’re going to be, who you’re going to be with, when you’re doing something, whay you’re going to be doing
Ask students, “Do you know what you should not share online?” Open up that dialogue and then teach them to remember by using YAPPY.
