Fordham Law students in the Center on Law and Information Policy’s Privacy Educators Program were featured in on CBS New York for their work educating New York public school students on online privacy for popular applications like TikTok.
The five-week program covers everything from privacy controls to navigating social media.
The program started back in 2013, teaching seventh graders, but administrators realized that was too late and are now focusing on fourth and fifth graders.
The law students said they are blown away by the youngsters’ capacity to absorb complicated information.
“They’re being introduced at such a young age that they’re really grasping it and learning it a lot quicker than I was anticipating,” Joseph Caruso said.
