Living Life Online

The Federal Trade Commission’s “Living Life Online” is a 16-page booklet aimed at teens and tweens.  The publication covers basic information about what kids do online and shows that the choices they make matter.  In addition to covering internet safety and security, “Living Life Online” also helps kids be better digital citizens and includes a section on applying media literacy skills to thinking critically about advertising.  A fun questionnaire tells you what type of tech personality you are, and there are other quizzes, activities, and short stories that illustrate the main points.
