Description

In 2018, our college's chapter of Phi Theta Kappa (the international honors society for two-year colleges) explored the ethics behind high school administrative officials reviewing, collecting, and utilizing information posted by high school students online. Through our research, we identified two areas of need: --A significant lack of awareness on the part of high school students concerning the privacy, acquisition, and use of information they post in various forms of social media --A lack of awareness of school policies allowing for and governing the acquisition and use of this information To address these needs, we designed an interactive website aimed at encouraging students to take stronger responsibility when posting information online and ensuring that their school does not use this information improperly. While we experienced significant bureaucratic and logistical challenges in developing our project, we are confident that the work we did will significantly serve our community through encouraging more responsible posting and usage of student information online.
