  8. 8. Savvy Tweens According to a study, around 80% of parents said that they don’t even know how to find out what their kids are doing online. (internet-saftey-yoursphere.com)
  9. 9. Digital Natives? Children growing up with the technology available today lead to the label “digital natives”- coined by Mark Prensky Kids may know how to use tech but are they using it to create and innovate? Though we are labeled the "immigrants" we need to guide our children to use the tech responsibly – Digital Citizenship

  16. 16. A definition of digital footprint Whether we're comfortable with it or not, digital footprints—which Richardson defines as "online portfolios of who we are, what we do, and by association, what we know"—are an inevitable by-product of life in a connected world. Instead of teaching students to be afraid of what others can learn about them online, let's teach them how digital footprints can quickly connect them to the individuals, ideas, and opportunities that they care most about. ~William Ferriter
  17. 17. What information about you can be tracked? the websites you visit what time of day the search and key words you use your location while browsing your IP address (unique online identity) what you said Who you interact with what you search for what is said about you What you say in your emails, texts and social media posts What you like or share on social media how much money you spend how old you are where you live if you were mentioned or quoted in a news story or blog post. http://i.ciconline.org/CicWebResources/InCtrl/LessonThree/InCtrl_YourDigitalFootprintLesson.pdf
  18. 18. Thinking Critically About Media At home……parents play a big role in helping children become media literate. It doesn't require a degree or special classes, just a little time and attention. Talk to your kids. Ask them about what they see, what they understand, and how they are affected. Many helpful ideas for parents can be found online.
  19. 19. Declaration of Digital Citizens “Responsible use of digital tools and technologies should be based on a universal and preventative mindset that digital activity is public and permanent, and interaction with other digital citizens through digital means should be: consensual non-exploitative honest, and; legal.” - See more at: http://internet-safety.yoursphere.com/2011/09/the-declaration-of-digita
