I’m a Teacher

What do I need to know to help my students stay safe online?

Identity theft is the illegal use of someone else’s personal information.

  • Some emails look official as if coming from school or a club. Let the students know when an email from school or teacher is expected.
  • Create strong passwords using a combination of letters, numbers and symbols.
  • Use privacy settings on social media sites.

Mobile Security is the protection of portable devices and the network they connect to.

  • Never leave mobile devices unattended.
  • Always lock your device when not using it.
  • Disconnect your device from the Internet when you are not using it.

Create a Good Password

An example of a way to build a good password is: “I went to Western Elementary School for grade 3” could be used to build a password like:Iw2We$t4g3.
