6. Cyber Safety


The Quests on this Thing 7 are to help you make connections between the real world and the digital world. The decisions you make in your digital world affect you as much as those made in the real world. In fact, your digital decisions and behaviors can affect you more and for longer than decisions made in the real world--even with prospective employers and college applications!
