2. Now, watch the video. Who are the main characters?
3. What information is available?
4. What is Red's status?
What can you conclude about online privacy?
The fairy-tale character is “Little Red Riding Hood”, so the title of the video is a pun (a play on words). Explain why!
Beware of the Internet
Did you know that 99% of teenagers use the Internet? Teenagers from 13 to 19 years old spend more than thirteen hours and a half on average on the web! More than half of these teens have received requests for personal information and the same number of children frequently have private conversations with strangers through instant messaging. 30% report that they have talked with a cyber-stranger about meeting in person. Can you believe that a quarter of teenagers discovered that someone they met online was an adult pretending to be much younger? And one in five children (aged 10 to 17) has already received a sexual solicitation!
What about you? Have you ever accepted a friend request from someone you didn't know? Have you ever talked with strangers in a chat room or via instant messaging? Have you ever been bullied on a social network? Have you ever discovered that you were in fact talking to an adult?
