Digital Citizenship Tips

LPS teachers instruct students about digital law when they help students explore how terms of service agreements and privacy policies are important and have real-world implications. Topics for a family discussion might include:

  • What is a privacy policy? (Tells how an application or service will use your personal information, photos, videos, and may include age requirements for the application or service.)
  • Why are privacy policies important?  (It’s important at a young age to decide how much information you want to share with an application or service and what information you want to keep private).
