Tonight, the CBC aired a documentary on Internet scams including the romance scams that I’ve been discussing on my blog as of late. The video is worth sharing and discussing. As well, I believe that this documentary is relevant to the #ccourses participants who are considering the possibilities around connected learning. I feel that it is incredibly important to fully disclose issues/risks such as internet scams to students as we begin to connect them in online spaces.
Check out the documentary here. If the video is blocked in your region, take a look at my blog post that will get you around international content restrictions.
