  1. Describe a time when you’ve felt unsafe online? What did you do to feel safe again?
  2. What actions do you take to keep yourself safe online? What tools can you use?
  3. Do you think it’s ok to create a false identity online? Why or why not?
  4. Why is protecting yourself online more important now than ever before?
  5. Why is it important that younger people have their social media monitored by their parents?

*The same questions will be used for the Slow Chat all month long. We recommend classes spend time answering the questions ahead of time so time during the chat can be spent liking tweets, retweeting, quoting tweets in reply, and collaborating with others.
