Youth, Online Privacy, and the New Literacies
Download to my calendar
Young people today are sophisticated users of the Internet, approaching this medium with ease and enthusiasm but often without understanding the impact the Internet and social media have on their privacy. This session will explore how the definition of literacy has expanded beyond reading and writing to encompass information, media, and digital literacies. Learn how school librarians' traditional commitments to literacy and privacy must extend into these new domains to educate students about privacy online.
