The OIPC Lesson Plans for Middle and High School Students

Students rely on their electronic devices, at school and at home. That’s why it’s important that they understand their privacy rights online.

The OIPC, Media Smarts, and Canada’s federal, provincial, and territorial privacy protection authorities collaborated to produce three privacy lesson plans for students. The lesson plans vary in length from one to three hours, and incorporate videos, class discussions, and exercises that introduce students to important privacy principles.
