Canada’s privacy commissioner’s office posted a news release on January 24, highlighting the need to protect the privacy rights of children during Data Privacy Week. They have launched two new initiatives to help teach children the value of protecting their privacy, and develop the skills to do so: Social Smarts: Nothing personal! – A graphic novel aimed at kids aged 8-10, in which a talking smartphone serves as a girl’s guide through the sometimes tricky online world; and, a blog suggesting parents have a “family tech talk,” pointing to tools and discussion points on their website.
