Dangers in Using Smartphone Pictures
I know that many of you are well aware of the tracking capabilities on Smartphones, right down to finding a child’s bedroom, day care and favorite place to play in the park from one posted picture. This video really drives home the point of those potential dangers and it offers a quick and easy solution. To protect children, I think it is critical that we share this information with staff, students and parents. Please take some time to watch the video.
