Privacy, rights and boundaries online

Young people like to share in-the-moment content and updates, all of the time. But sometimes, it can impinge on the privacy of others.

Learning intentions

  • Inform young people of the implications of sharing information, particularly about others, online
  • Identify ways that young people can protect their own privacy online
  • Explore ways of sharing content online whilst respecting the boundaries and privacy of others.

Ian's story

Ian's story video thumbnail

In this scenario, a video is recorded and shared online without the consent of Ian, the person who is featured in it. It conflicts with both their personal boundaries, as well as their right to consent.

Classroom discussion

Using Ian’s story as a starting point, introduce some of the following questions to your class for discussion:

  • Do you think that Ian’s privacy was respected when the video was recorded and posted online?
  • If you were in a similar situation to Ian, how would you feel and what would you do?
  • If the people who recorded and posted the video were to respect Ian’s boundaries and his right to privacy, what should they have done?
  • Would they need to do the same thing if they were to just record a video of Ian, but not put it online?
Class Brainstorm

Using post-it notes, invite your class to brainstorm different ways of protecting their own privacy while using social media.
