  • 14. Social Networking
    Reasons why people join social networks
  • 15. Digital Footprint
    • As an internet user, you will have a digital or online reputation that is similar to your personal reputation.
    • 16. What goes online stays online.... forever.
    • 17. Even if you think it is private it really isn't. Anyone can take a screenshot of anything you write or post and share it with anyone. There is no digital privacy and we should all behave with that assumption at the back of our mind. It should make us "better people."
  • Networking has benefits and drawbacks
    • Behavior changes according to context. Kids need to learn proper online etiquette for a variety of situations. This is a message we should be teaching kids at home and at school. You need to know your audience. There are things you can say with friends that you would never say in school.
    • 18. Networks built young have great potential. Kids are building connections now that can serve them well into their professional lives.
    • 19. Fail young. I believe it general it is helpful to let kids to "fail" in middle school when the stakes are lower. When you first get involved with a social network it can be addicting and wreak havoc on your time management. Usually this addiction passes after some time. It is better to get through those early…
    Behavior is behavior 
    What do you do with behaviour that needs correcting?
    Don't be afraid to parent when it comes to technology. Take the phone away, turn off the internet, keep the computer in a public room, limit time online. Trust your instincts.
    Addiction is addiction.
    If you are concerned about your child's over-use of technology, address it before it gets out of control, just as you would any other addictive behavior.
  • 20. Setting boundaries ...
  • 21. Tips for dealing with excessive internet use
    Communicate Talk to their children about what they enjoy doing online and try to understand their interests.
    Set house rules Work out some boundaries for their children's access to the internet. It is better that children understand what parents expect rather than trying to work it out for themselves. Families can determine some consequences together if the rules are broken.
    Supervise Make sure they can adequately supervise what their children are doing online, particularly younger children. They can move the computer into a public area of the house to make it easier.
    Introduce other family activities Ensuring children are exposed to a range of other, non-internet-based activities is a good way to help them lead a balanced lifestyle.
  • 22. Online: Unwanted Contact
    Online stalking and harassment
    Online grooming or unwelcome sexual solicitation
  • 23. Cyberbullying
    unwilling to go to school
    feeling unwell in the mornings
    falling behind in school work and homework
    suddenly disinterested in the computer
    becoming withdrawn, distressed, anxious, or lacking confidence
    becoming aggressive and beginning to bully other children or sibling
    disturbed or deprived of sleep
    feeling depressed or crying without reason
    mood swings
    becoming anti-social and isolated from peers.
  • 24. What you can do
    Advise children:
    Not to communicate or share personal contact details with ‘strangers’, that is, someone they don’t know in real life. Don’t allow strangers onto your contacts list on IM or email.
    To check with a parent or trusted adult when adding a new contact to their online social network.
    To ask a parent or carer to assist with the setting up of a new account.
    Advise young people to:
    Reflect on how they met the person in question, for example, a friend of a friend, or on a gaming site.
    Monitor the person’s online presence, including their profiles, network of friends and communications with others.
    Monitor the tone and content of communications.
  • 25. General Rules- Social Media Etiquette for Students
    Act like you would in real life:
    You have to earn respect
    Always introduce yourself:
    Avoid burnout
    Be curious, but not nosy
    Be extra polite
    Golden rule - treat others the way you want to be treated
    Remember that there are boundaries
