Summary

L’Association sur l’accès et la protection de l’information (AAPI) produced an educational kit for junior highschool teachers and students on privacy and developing sound practices for posting pictures and personal information on the Internet. The kit was created to help teachers discuss issues concerning online privacy and personal information protection and encourage sound practices for posting pictures and the use and disclosure of personal information.

The free educational kit was part of a public outreach campaign to raise awareness of privacy and personal information protection issues. The AAPI worked with various partners to develop and distribute the kit. 

The project drew on the AAPI’s extensive experience and was carried out by a group of young people, who were guided by a team of experts composed of a youth blogger, a linguist, graphic designers and individuals who regularly work with the AAPI. The goal was to reach out to a specific segment of the public and make them more conscious of privacy issues. Simply, effectively and economically, the project provided an educational kit with a multitude of tools and ideas to help young people form cautious, responsible habits when it comes to posting their pictures and personal information on the Internet.
