    Powerful materials on the dangers of social networking. Use with older students only. Preview before use to know if the information is too sensitive for some of your viewers.

    I used this video in the sexual harassment unit. The stories made students aware of their use of social media related to sexual harassment such as spreading rumors and posting sexual pictures, etc. Great video.
