Online Basics - Three New Videos from Common Craft

For those of us who use social media on a daily basis and who do most of our shopping online, it can be easy to falsely assume that everyone else is equally comfortable online. That's why I was happy to see Common Craft's new videos about online basics.

Common Craft's new online basics series contains three videos that are designed to help those new to social media, online shopping, and other elements of a digital lifestyle learn the basics.

Digital Lifestyle explains what "digital lifestyle" means and some of the benefits of social media.

Online Identity explains why a person would create an online identity.

Online Accounts explains how to create a secure username and password on a website. This is a good review for anyone, not just those who are new to using the web.

Disclosure: I have an in-kind business relationship with Common Craft.

Privacy Online Explained by Common Craft

Have you or your students ever wondered what happens to all of the data collected by your web browsing habits? Or have you wondered why Facebook shows you one set of advertisements while a friend sitting next to you might see completely different advertisements? It all comes down to data collection and online privacy. In their latest video Common Craft explains how privacy online is different than it is in the real world, what happens to your online data, and how that data was captured to begin with. The video is embedded below.

As with all Common Craft videos you can view this one online for review, but to embed it you need to be a Common Craft member.
