Preview: New Unit of Study – Catfishing!


When you hear the word “catfishing,” the internet may not be the first thing that comes to mind. But when MTV producer Nev Schulman was duped by a fake online relationship, he coined the term “catfishing” to describe the actions of those who fabricate an online identity, especially prevalent among young people today.

From looking at online deception through social platforms, to the technology behind online protection, the Teengagement® Unit of Study Catfishing asks students to answer the question, “How can I protect myself and others while online?”

Please enjoy the following video preview of Catfishing.

The Unit of Study Catfishing will be available April 15, 2014.
