Connect Safely - Videos on Safe Social Network Use

Connect Safely is an organization creating materials to educate students, teachers, and parents about the safe use of social networking services. One of the resources that Connect Safely offers is a series of educational videos. The videos offer quick little lessons about what can happen to the information posted on social network sites. I've embedded one of the videos below.


Thanks to Josh Allen for the link to Connect Safely.

Applications for Education
The acting in the Connect Safely videos may be a little cheesy, but they still offer good talking points that can be used in middle school and high school classrooms.
