Understanding Passwords

We will finish up our unit on Digital Citizenship next week when the students examine Digital Conduct.  This week we are going to take a break from the routine and look at passwords. Today being Columbus Day, the students had a break and did not have to come to school. The district employees met in the High School Auditorium to hear about Social Networking from the TGB Fraud organization.  We heard some very good information about safeguards to keep in mind when using social network sites to help protect your identity.  The speaker also shared with us some good ideas for setting and changing passwords.  I will pass this information along to my students this week.  We will watch the above video to get the converstation started.
