Here in Uruguay this year we are starting an small pilot. We are going
to visit some secondary schools (between 11 and 17 years old student) to
give them some guidelines about the responsable use of social networks
and make then realize that the personal information they post is mostly
public if they don't take the proper measures. We will be also having
some parents meetings to talk to them how can they guide they kids in
the responsable use of Internet.
I'm starting to prepare some materials for this... maybe when I finish
we can include them on this project.
