  • Welcome:The objective is to get students to watch and playRecord and createPause and ponderEject and reflectCommunicate and connectNetwork and respondListen carefully And Stop and Act
  • I don’t have children of my own but I do teach and I can appreciate the struggles that parents must go through when trying to control or manage media. For example at my high school two weeks ago we became fully wireless. And being out in the county, kids weren’t always able to get a cell phone signal. So, the other day one of my Media Studies students stood up in the middle of class – like a scene out of the movie Braveheart and bellowed “I HAVE A SIGNAL!” ....I was a little concerned.
  • Social Media is used by youth as a means to share, express, and talk.Share-videos through sites like YouTube, -pictures on Flickr -documents through Google docs where groups of people can edit and store files -information as a wiki collaborator-music sharing through peer to peer sites like FrostWire. Express-Blogging on sites like blogger.com-Mircroblog on sites like Twitter (update your status is 140 characters or less)-Broadcast news live on Live Cast-Subscribe to RSS news feeds to get the latest information on a celebrity and leave a comment-Create a personalized interactive poster of oneself with video, music, photos and text and share with others. (Glogster.com) Talk-via MSN instant messaging-web chatting on “tinychat”-create their own social networking group on Ning-Skype to talk using webcams -and play against other gamers online while communicating as opponents or teammates.
  • After recent rioters ued BBM to communicate. With one ‘ping’ rioters could coordinate where the next looting would take place. BBM offers a free mobile phone messaging service open to anyone with a BlackBerry smartphonePublic social media forums like Facebook and Twitter were also used to rally the troops but this technology was not as fast or as effective as BBM (which is also sponsored by Jay-Z)It is cheap, and confidential. ...but RIM decided to assist police in investigating criminal actions. Authorities have now begun arrests of these social media misusers who incited violence.So the question is, is social media to blame? Or are the users?
  • Now, I want to be clear, I love media (maybe not Twilight) but would like our children and students to make healthy media choices; to be responsible users.They should dominate their media not be dominated by it.
  • Generation M: Media in the Lives of 8-18 Year oldsSO BEFORE WE BEGIN, WE SHOULD UNDERSTAND HOW THIS GENERATION OF YOUTH ENGAGE IN THEIR MEDIA ENVIRONMENTS.Technology Survey - Kasier Family Foundation (January 2010)Young people (age 8-18) now spend an average of 7 hours 38 minutes on one screen or another which adds up to more than 53 hours per week – those figure do not include textingThis has increased from 6:21 in 2004; multitasking increased from 8:33 in 2004Multitasking accounts for 1 hour and 35 minutes (students grade 7-12) therefore youth are actually receiving 11 hours of media use during their 7:38 hoursOnly half of parents surveyed set limits on their children’s computer use30% said they had rules for watching TV, playing video games, and using the computerThose that did: children spent less time with media (3 hours less than their peers who had no rules)64% said the TV is on during meals, and another 45% said the TV is left on most of the time (in the background)71% have a TV in their bedroom, and 50% have a gaming console in their bedroom54% of heavy media users (around 16 hours per day) are getting poor grades, compared to only 23% of light media users (under 3 hours per day)New ways to watch TV – time shifting, online, iPods, cell phones – led to an increase in total TV consumption (3:51 to 4:29 hours per day)51% of TV is consumed from live TV; 49% is consumed by the other methods74% of 7th-12th graders have a social networking profile45% are using another form of media while doing their homeworkGirls = social networking sites, listening to music, reading; Boys = console video games, computer games, going to video websites like YouTubeTweens (age 11-14) are consuming 11:53 hours of media per day (figure does not take into account multitasking) versus 7:51 for youth ages 8-10Youth spend 3 minutes per day reading the newspaper, or 2 minutes online reading the news
  • Continued...“53% have no family rules on access or content” - interestingly, in families with media consumption rules, children spent less time with media (3 hours less than their peers who had no rules)Note: 19% under 2 have a TV, 29% between age 2-3, and 43% between age 4-6 Also...Nielsen Media: US studySurprisingly, given all the publicity about cyber stalking and cyber bullies, more than half of parents do not apply any parental controls offered by service providers to their children’s cell phone usage.
  • Cellphones and TextingThe averageU.S. mobile teen now sends or receivesan average of 2,899 text-messages permonth compared to 191 calls. The averagenumber of texts has gone up 566% injust two years, far surpassing the averagenumber of calls, which has stayed nearlysteady.June 2009“How Teens Use Media: A Nielsen report on the myths and realities of teen media trends”The average age that kids begin borrowing cell phones is 8 and the average age of ownership is 9.The next time you hear “everybody’s got one”, the fact is, that classic ploy may be true. By age 10, roughly half of children own a mobile phone. By age 11, six in ten own a mobile phone. By age 12, fully three-fourths of all children have their own mobile phone.http://blog.nielsen.com/nielsenwire/consumer/teens-more-normal-than-you-think-regarding-media-usage/

  • Wouldn’t it be easier to just censor everything? Now you can do just that....simply purchase your own Media Monkey.I see my job as one of media education not media elimination.
  • When it comes to your online identity and the anonymity of users one must be very careful about what you share and say and to whom you communicate.Now, here’s a surefire way to scare the heck out of your friends. Take the Lollipop Test to see how much information you are sharing on Facebook.http://www.takethislollipop.com/
  • Tip One: Know who you are chatting withOne of the most notorious cases of identity fraud on social networking sites would have to be the “Megan Meier story”Megan Meier, 13, began receiving nasty messages from a boy after a few weeks of an online flirtation with him, via her MySpace account, ending with one that suggested “the world would be a better place” without her. Megan, believing she had been rejected by "Josh," committed suicide in her home.Six weeks after Megan’s death, her parents learned that "Josh Evans" never existed. He was an online character created by Lori Drew, then 47, who lived four houses down the street. Because Ms. Drew, the mother of one of Megan's former friends, had taken Megan on family vacations, she knew the girl had been prescribed antidepression medication, Mrs. Meier said, and that she had a Myspace page.In a highly unusual use of a federal law generally employed in computer fraud cases, a federal grand jury indicted Ms. Drew in May 2008 on charges that she had used a phony online identity to trick and taunt Megan. She pled not guilty to the charges and the case went to trial in November 2008.-New York TimesShe was found guilty of three minor counts of violating MySpace's terms of use, but was cleared of the more serious charges that carried a maximum of 20 years in jail. Many states are now pursuing cyberbullying laws.
  • Tip 2: Never assume your actions are anonymousTake Formspring for example. This app allows users to post questions to which anyone can respond. The responses are anonymous. BUT, remember all apps collect information and you are leaving a trail.
  • Tip 3: Just because you read it, doesn’t mean it’s realStudents today can manipulate text messages to appear as though they are from another person.
  • Tip 4: Virtual Reality can become a realityOnce your son or daughter has moved on from webkinz, he or she might begin venturing into the world of Habbo.Before registering on any site check out Account Killer:Use this to help permanently delete your profile or account. Check out their “Black list” to see if the website will allow you to delete your account before you register.http://www.accountkiller.com/en/e.g. You can't delete your account. Habbo is pretty unclear about when -at all- your account will be deleted. From their help pages:“We do not delete accounts at request. If you no longer wish to use an account you can take all your furni off of it, delete all rooms and spend all credits, the account will then be removed the next time that Sulake clear out unused names.”See https://help.habbo.com/entries/285194-general-account-questions(Who the heck is Sulake?)
  • Tip 5: Don’t take the baitThe worm's name -- Rbot -- comes from the fact that it's designed to turn a remote computer into a robot that will do the virus writer's bidding.Grooming Techniques:Let’s go private = Let’s move to a private chat room, instant messaging or phone.Where’s the computer in your house? = Helps the predator understand if the parents are around.What kinds of music do you like? Movie? Hobbies? Clothes store?= This is helps the groomer get to know you better and know what gifts to offer.I can help you get a modeling job = They are flattering you, to get you to cooperate.You seem upset. Tell me what’s bothering you = Trying to get your trust using sympathy.Where do you live? What school do you go to? What’s your phone number = Asking for personal info – usually after the target is feeling comfortable.If you don’t do what I ask I’ll show your parents the photos you’ve sent me = Intimidation and threats – scare tactics to achieve the predator’s goal
  • Tip 6: Know how to reportOntario Provincial Police:http://www.opp.ca/ecms/index.php?id=489http://www.deal.org/http://deal.org/parents/DEAL.org is a by-youth for-youth web-based program that began in 1997. DEAL.org is operated by the Youth Engagement Section of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and is part of the National Youth Services branch of the RCMP’s Crime Prevention ServicesClaim your identity? It’s up to you.
  • Tip 7: Defend Your DomainHere are some basic tips on how to Defend Your Domain:Keep your passwords privateDelete and De-friend Challenge Friend RequestsPassword: s0cc3Rkidd No full names, addresses, license plate numbers, where you work, your date of birth, your social security numberClaim your identityAnti-Virus SoftwareDon’t oopen attachmentsAvoid P2P Bit Torrents e.g. LimeWire, FrostwireTurn the Webcam off and aroundThe site http://www.fakenamegenerator.com/ can get you a name, address, city, age, site name, and email address.When using a peer to peer file sharing network, you are at a major risk of downloading and installing Malware that gives another user somewhere in the world access to your computer files.

  • Fact 1: Age is just a numberTrue story...
  • Fact 2: Not all apps are created equallyPolling and Rating sites are open forums for cruelty.
  • Fact 3: Live Video Chat - It’s like a box of chocolates: You never know what you’re gonna get.Any video transmission can be recorded. http://www.chatdanger.com/
  • Fact 4: It’s ForeverBut it’s important for our kids to know that whether it’s in a virtual world or on facebook what they do online IS FOREVER! Nothing is ever PRIVATE!One of the biggest concerns in terms of technology and cell phone use is “sexting”See the Case of Jesse Loganhttp://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/29546030/ns/today-parenting/Teens aged 13-17 are the biggest texters of all youth averaging 2,272 text messages a month. The conversations may sound something like this: “Wut up?” “Nm. U?” “Nm”. According to Nielsen company “that’s almost 77 messages a day.”Especially when kids are now using their cell phones and computers to share racing photos of themselves in the phenomenon called “sexting”.According to Common Sense Media, 22% of teen girls and 20% of teen boys have sent nude or semi-nude photos of themselves 22% of teens admit that technology makes them personally more forward and aggressive 38% say exchanging sexy content makes dating or hooking up with others more likely 29% believe those exchanging sexy content are “expected” to date or hook up Unfortunately, revealing photos can be resent to a vast audience andSending a sexual image to a minor is illegal. “A 15 year old Pennsylvania girl is facing child pornography charges for sending nude photos of herself to other kids. A 19 year old was thrown out of college and is now registered as a sex offender for 25 years because he sent nude pictures of his girlfriend to other teens.” – Today msnbc“Under the Criminal Code offenders who possess images of children under the age of 18 engaging in sexual activity may now be sentenced up to five years in prison.”
  • Age Compression is the act of pushing more mature attitudes and behaviours onto younger and younger audiences.For example... Abercrombie has a line of push-up bras and bikinis for girls aged 7-12.American Apparel sexualizes young girls in their ads.Additionally...Teen Role Models like Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Blake Lively etc. have all been caught sexting.For a light-hearted but informative series of videos on the dangers of sexting, driving and texting, and more...Check out LG’s Text Education with Jayne Lynchhttp://www.lg.com/us/mobile-phones/text-education/homeroom.jsp
  • Our children and teens are growing up very quickly and they want to be a part of this adult world (including the world of Facebook)Context: A little while back, Tom Ford guest-edited an issue of French Vogue that featured a lot of images on the theme of age: Crystal Renn was a past-her-prime plastic surgery casualty, mature models groped each other in a racy ed called Forever Love, 70-year-old Betty Catroux sat for a portrait and a then-15-year-old Daphne Groeneveld posed seductively on the cover alongside Ford himself.http://thegloss.com/beauty/thylane-lena-rose-blondeau-beautiful-10-year-old-fashion-model-makes-us-uncomfortable/
  • Social Media is interactive, user-generated, highly accessible, and loosely governed. Take for example Facebook or the new Google Buzz.Also, social plug-ins allow you to “Like” something on a website and then this is transferred to your facebook page where your friends can see. Facebook also offers the “personalized experience” where the “moment you arrive [on a website that has partnered with Facebook], the website will immediately be playing the music you like or displaying friends' reviews. Note: to tailor the experience, these partners access public information (like your name and profile picture) and information available to everyone.To Turn it Off:When you first arrive at the following sites, you'll see a notification message and an option to turn off the personalized experience:Bing - Social SearchPandora - Personalized MusicTripAdvisor - Social TravelYelp - Friends' Local ReviewsRotten Tomatoes - Friends' Movie ReviewsClicker - Personalized TV RecommendationsScribd - Social ReadingDocs - Document CollaborationFor tips on how to protect your kids on Facebook, check out this CommonSense Media videohttp://www.commonsensemedia.org/facebook-parents

  • Facebook has changed its settings to allow you to control what you post right on the page where it is posted. Add location information, tag photos and friends, and determine how you share: Friends, Friends of Friends, or make it Public.When you have location services turned on in your phone, your photos will store location information (this is called geotagging).
  • At the bottom of the Customize Settings page, notice the feature “Include me in People Here Now”. Unclick this to disable the feature. Also, see the “edit privacy settings” for photo albums, and scroll down to edit who can post on your wall, who gets to see tagged photos or video of you and more. No contact information (like mobile phone numbers, address, or email address) should be available .
  • If you have the My Places App installed on Facebook or on your mobile, you need to Customize the Privacy to indicate who will be able to see your location or what will be posted on “People Here Now”. Friends using the Places location-sharing tool can announce teens' locations by "tagging" them if teens allow this function by opting in; teens will be immediately notified of the "tag" if they are using the Facebook app on a smartphone or via their email. There are many GPS enabled apps on mobile phones such as Here I Am or Check-In. Many smart phones encode the location of where pictures are taken. This is called Geotagging. If one posts a photo that has been geotagged (longitude and latitude are recorded when the photo is taken thanks to GPS enabled phones) anyone who has a copy of the photo can access one’s location.
  • Twitter allows for users to update their status in 140 characters of less. You can follow others and get mobile notifications when people update. Parents should be aware that when their children subscribe to or follow a celebrity, they will be exposed to celebrity self-promotion and even product peddling. Kim Kardashian thinks it is important that we all know she is on her way to the gym and just loves her new Reebok Easytone shoes. She even provides a web address for those of her followers who want to purchase the same shoes.All the same rules apply with Twitter as with any Social Networking site:Be aware of phishing, spam, identity impersonation, geotagging, and applications that may use/share your information.
  • See the following article about how to avoid sharing personal information with third parties.http://www.zdnet.com/blog/igeneration/facebook-to-resume-phone-and-address-sharing-how-to-prevent-it/8552How to delete your Facebook Account:http://www.facebook.com/help/?page=842
  • Here is an example of what you might be sharing.
  • The following apps have the ability to help break up a relationship, vote or rank friends, dissuade users from blocking or defriending aggressors/harassers, and from receiving hateful and anonymous posts.-The concept behind the banned Breakup Notifierand the new Waiting Room Facebook apps: “You like someone. They’re in a relationship. Be the first to know when they’re out of it.” The user is aware someone(s) are interested in him/her and the user can receive comments from the anonymous admirer(s). This application is kept secret on the admirer’s page. -Poll Daddy allows users to poll their friends. They create their own questions and answer options.-The defriend (DF) app allows the user to check their friend list every time they login to their Facebook account to monitor who has dropped them or blocked them.-Honesty Box and Formspring apps are similar in that they allow people to anonymously post questions or comments on your wall/forum. The following information is available to the apps kids use or their friends use: profile information such as: a kid’s name, profile photo, gender, and networks a kid has identified.
  • How do I turn on the option to review posts and photos I’m tagged in before they appear on my profile (timeline)? If you’d like to review posts and photos you're tagged in before they go on your profile (timeline)...If you’d like to review posts and photos you're tagged in before they go on your profile (timeline), turn on Profile (Timeline) Review. Click the account menu at the top right of any Facebook page and choose Privacy Settings > Manage How Tags Work > Change Settings > Profile (Timeline) Review.

  • Children and teens are experiencing many problems with Instant messaging, facebook communication, online blogs/diaries, which can make navigating relationships difficult and even dangerous. The Ad Council has also come up with some wonderful Public Service Announcements concerning Cyberbullying which would serve as great discussion starters with your child.Talent Show – Cyberbullying PSAhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gN84KW7RuUKitchen – Cyberbullying PSAhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pmD8OKl8vVMThink Before You Post – Sexting PSAhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhBknvwgfmk

  • Rebecca Black’s mother paid $4000 for this music video to be made of her daughter’s song. Rebecca uploaded the video to her own Youtubechannel and then became a viral star. Unfortunately, the critics attacked her calling it the “worst song ever”.To make matters worse, she received death threats and she left school to be homeschooled due to incessant verbal bullying.
  • Flaming can also happen with online gaming:Call of Duty – "Call of Duty: Black Ops". The game sold 7 million copies in its first 24 hours and topped $1 billion in sales within six weeks. The player assumes the role of a foot soldier who can wield various firearms, of which two at a time can be carried; throw grenades and other explosives; and use other equipment as weapons. Many gamers play online/live in teams. There are even tournaments where teams can compete for huge cash prizes.

  • Technology has made flaming and bullying inescapable and at times intensifies the digital drama.Remember all of these social networking tools can be utilized on mobile phones. Phones are no longer just mobile phones, they are mini computers. Teens should be aware that their conversations can be easily recorded with Applications like Recorder Pro. These phones are also used as video recorders or cameras. 2008 - Six teenage girls and two boys were charged as adults in the March 30 beating in Lakeland, Fla. of a 16-year-old acquaintance. The teens videotaped the assault and allegedly threatened to post the film on the Internet at MySpace and YouTube. I have to appreciate celebrity support of anti-bullying laws and encouraging messages to our youth.e.g. Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”

  • Bulling and HarassmentIf you are being harassed, leave the area or stop the activitySave and print any harassing messages.Tell a trusted adultBlock the sender's messages. Never reply to harassing messages.Report the problem to your phone service, website, or internet provider. If it’s a persistent problem you can change the phone number.Know the policies, user agreements and guidelines of the websites you use to determine what is appropriate and acceptable content. Most service providers have appropriate use policies that restrict users from harassing others over the Internet. Meet with school officials (Principal, Safe Schools Team) and ask for help in resolving the situation.Report any incident of online harassment and physical threats to your local police and your Internet Service Provider (ISP).Also, remember…Youtube is for a community of users and you are responsible for flagging inapropriate videos and comments.
  • Constant Messaging is Digital Disrespect and Abusive.
  • Overtexting is a newly recognized form of dating abuse and harassment. Love is Respect.org All cell phone companies offer unlimited texting. Kids live in an always-on environment. It’s not uncommon for teens to receive texts in the middle of the night.The teen drama TV show “Pretty Little Liars” revolves around four girls who are being digitally harassed and stalked via their phones. These girls never seek adult assistance or report the incidents to the police. Check out the site I Can Stalk U (that raises awareness about inadvertent information sharing) to learn how to protect yourself by setting the controls on your phone. http://icanstalku.com/Also see:http://www.commonsensemedia.org/how-set-parental-controls-iphone
  • Most social media sites include a Statement of Rights and Responsibilities...you will not bully, intimidate, or harass any user. You will not post content that is hateful, threatening, or pornographic; incites violence; or contains nudity or graphic or gratuitous violence.There is also a "Report/Block person" link available from the bottom of the abusive user's profile. If you learn that someone is continuing to make abusive comments about your teen even after they've been blocked, you or a friend can report that person on your teen's behalf.For Cell phones, you can block numbers but it is also important to contact your cellphone provider, document it, share it with an adult, and report any threats.
  • YouTube is a fabulous forum for the outstanding, and the unusual. Take for example the huge success of Mike Tompkins.
  • But...with television shows and movies like Jack Ass, WWE, UFC, Nitro Circus teaching our young boys to be tough, be a warrior. Take risks. Get ripped. Don’t cry....you better be certain these behaviours and attitudes are being mimicked online.Take for example the daredevil sport of Parkour...Parkour is the skill of moving through an urban landscape quickly as first developed by the military. Unfortunately, kids attempt to make their own Jackass stunts or Parkour videos with little supervision or training. Usually these videos are set to cool music and you very rarely see the full consequences of their epic fails.Type in “Parkour Fail” and enjoy a multitude of injurious videos.
  • Type in Parkour into YouTube and see the awesome and totally unawesome attempts at urban running.
  • If you type girl fight into Youtube right now you will get over 3 million hits.
