In this talk, Chiasson will present research that she has conducted over the last few years about children and online safety. She will discuss parent and children’s concerns, as well as mental models relating to online privacy and security threats.
Chiasson will explore several educational tools that help children understand online risks and learn how to protect themselves. Her team has created and user-tested an interactive ebook for children ages six to eight, as well as online comics and a game for tweens to teach critical thinking skills relating to online behaviour.
