Sonia Chiasson, School of Computer Science

In this talk, I will present research that we have conducted over the last few years about children and online safety.  We will first discuss parent and children’s concerns and mental models relating to online privacy and security threats.  Next, we will explore several educational tools we created to help children understand the risks and learn how to protect themselves. We have created and user tested an interactive e-book for 6-8 year olds, as well as online comics and a game for tweens to teach critical thinking skills relating to online behaviours.
