What is your biggest concern about online privacy for your students? There is a significant concern in using the Internet when it comes to sharing information, using campus devices to demonstrating presence online, documenting personal accounts online or comments on professional environment, to name a few.

Unfortunately, there is still a significant number of parents who are not aware of what their children are doing online. These parents are still in the belief that their children are not capable of doing harm to themselves and/or to others online. Likewise, parents are not aware of the consequences of their children's actions, especially when there are records or documentation that can be retrieved online to demonstrate the different web sites visited and being accessed by their children. Parents don't have to be tech gurus in order to be mindful and aware of their children's actions online. What parents need to understand that they have thebpowerto be vigilant and consistent in knowing what their children are doing. This includes finding the resources to use to support the need to monitor their children.
