It seems as though every student in the class is receiving the picture via a text message. The teacher, Mr. Canon, receives the picture too.
Generation Safe Scenario #2 o Students in Ms. House’s class are allowed to use their personal cell phones during class as student responders or for research. Not every student has a personal device, so they share. Steve and Karen share Steve’s phone, and are working on a project together. At recess, Karen tells other students that Steve is using his phone to cheat, and a group of students begin taunting Steve. The Noon Duty Supervisor sees the commotion, asks what is going on, and confiscates Steve’s phone. Unfamiliar with his iPhone, she begins to search Steve’s email, his pictures, his tweets, his apps, and his text messages.

The privacy settings on her personal FB account are set to ―Public‖. On her personal FB account, Miss Smith posts pictures of herself, wearing an OPUSD sweatshirt, and her friends drinking and partying in Las Vegas this past weekend. When Miss Smith goes to class on Monday, she sees comments in the Moodle discussion, referring to her fun weekend, in her school FB account, so she deletes the pictures.
Generation Safe Scenario #4 o Jason, a senior, has excellent grades. His parents expect him to attend a top tier college.

One of the other students is a girl, Jennifer, that Jason likes. Jennifer is unaware that Jason has been changing her grades.
Generation Safe Scenario #5 o Mr. Jones teaches fifth grade. Several middle students, Tom, Joe, and Ben, are siblings of students in his class. Tom, Joe, and Ben create a teacher Facebook fan page, posing as Mr. Jones. Mr. Jones is unaware of the site. They post pictures from Mr. Jones’ Tea Party play on the site. These pictures are ―liked‖ by many students in his class. Tom, Joe, and Ben also post a picture of Mary falling down on the playground, The caption on the picture is, ―Dumbbell, dumbbell all fall down.‖ The next week, they post an altered picture of Mary coming out of the boy’s bathroom; the caption is, ―Dumbbell doesn’t know if she’s a boy or a girl. Over the course of the next week, they continue to post inappropriate pictures of Mary. The other students begin to taunt Mary to the point that Mary stops going to school. Mr. Jones calls Mary’s parents to see why she is not at school, and becomes aware of the fake site.
