  • A few short years ago, these Internet safety presentations relied on scary anecdotes and lead crime stories on the 11 oclock news. A lot has happened with the Internet and how people use it since then. One can argue the merits and demerits of the Internet, but one thing is certain, the Internet and all the services it provides, is here for the long haul.
  • It’s estimated that... read stats.
    The Internet is providing students with learning experiences that are vastly different from those of a generation ago. And of course, the Safety concerns adults might have for their children are also very different from a generation or two ago.

  • Every child, in every generation, faces challenges to growing up. For children of this generation, it’s the Internet that’s front and center of these challenges. And many parents today may look at these Internet offerings as a choice between Distracting or Dangerous.
    They might say ‘choose your poison.

    These days, the Internet can play a huge role in challenging as well as promoting a child’s development.

  • But let’s take a look at the realities of some of these concerns...

  • Sexual assaults on probably the heaviest online user group, teenagers, actually dropped during this time.

  • Research indicates that victims are also experiencing other risk factors in their lives.

  • Bullying, whether or online or in person is a serious problem. Bullies thrive when the victim is scared, ashamed, and silent. at Edgewood we encourage students to make their voices heard and we give them opportunities, especially through our lunch clubs, to be heard.
  • Let’s take a look at how some of these online concerns play out at Edgewood. Edgewood realities.
  • In a recent survey, of about 146 students in grades 3-5, about 12% of students who responded said “12% have been or know someone who has been bullied or contacted by a stranger online.
  • When asked what they do if they or someone they know is ever bullied or contacted by a stranger online 75% say cyberbullies and threatening strangers need to be reported. If you look at a site like Moshi Monster’s you’ll see a number of discussion postings in the Forum about cyberbullies. Kids encouraging others to speak up, kids exchanging the usernames of those who have been hurtful... and reporting them to the web site. How many of you are on Facebook?
  • 82% of those surveyed are involved with some form of online social networking. Once upon a time ago, the thought of young students, especially those in elementary school, being involved in some online social networking activity would ‘ve been frightening for parents. And if you still do find it frightening, you should know that many of our Edgewood kids have a sense of how to protect themselves while online.

  • So the safety message from parents and teachers seem to be getting through. They are taking responsibility for their own action or at least they recognize behavior or actions that can cause problems for them and others.

  • We still have so much to learn about how kids are using and learning from their computer acitivites, but we need to engage them in conversation.
  • The Elementary School Acceptable Use and Internet Safety Policy is reviewed each year with students in grades 3-5. And since second graders now access the Internet for research, we also talk to them about keeping safe on the Internet.
  • We explain that the purpose of these rules is not to be a wet blanket on their Internet experience, but to promote a learning environment that is safe, productive and fun. In presenting this policy we’ve also begun the discussion on ethics and responsibilities of the online user, which until recent years has not been a discussion taking place in schools. This is what we’re doing in school, what can parents do at home?

  • For more information for online safety visit the district web site or my school page. I know this is an Internet Safety presentation, but I think we need to look at how the Internet can transform students into highly motivated learners.
  • Ultimately, the values you convey to them will always be the little voice in their head, nudging them in the right direction.

  • I know this is an INternet Safety presentation, but there is more at stake here. Here’s an ad from Cisco to explain.
  • In Scarsdale, we block access to many web sites that are inappropriate and unrelated to the curriculum and we limit the use of technology that interferes with schoolwork. But rather than emphasizing the denial of resources, our approach is to focus student efforts on Digital Citizenship, developing research skills, and making meaningful contributions to a global conversation. All areas of learning are essential to helping today’s children compete on the global market in future.
  • We also had teachers take part in a mandatory training session on digital citizenship in which they took a close look at scenarios which teetered on the ethics fence....

    We take the last item to heart when working on wikis.
  • A wiki gives each student a public voice. It is not flip or loose in language. we maintain the same standards for writing and rigor that we would in the classroom. The difference is that a wiki lives online so it allows for seamless work between school and home.
  • Mrs. Huang’s class used a wiki to develop their public service announcement scripts. And students provided feedback on one another’s drafts. (Click) but early in the process, we developed a class set of standards for commenting on each other’s writing. Comments praise, encourage, provide constructive feedback. And user comments in our school community, should not be anonymous. We’re working on establishing that with our Edgewood news site. although most comments are appropriate.
  • Even though the forum for communication has changed from in person, or letter writing, to an online venue, the fundamentals of communication must stay intact. This gets back to the analogy of Digital Natives v Immigrants. Kids today are the digital natives. They are immersed in technology and use it seemingly with ease. The adults are the Immigrants having to learn a new language, new customs, and struggling to know what their kids know.

  • When researching online, students are practicing skills of a New Literacy. These skills include traditional literacy skills as well as those that are specific to the digital age-- skimming text, clicking hyperlinks, maintaining multiple web pages, etc. These skills are necessary to help us analyze and evaluate content on the web during Internet research. At Edgewood , we begin our search on the web. If you haven’t seen our library page we have lots of resources that are teacher approved for their language, content that’s related to the curriculum, and user friendliness.

  • You can access this site and these resources from home. These are resources that are for the most part are user friendly for young students, appropriate to reading level, and provides content info realated to the curriculum.
  • Is it a dot com or an edu or gov. Locate the link that explains the background of the author or organization that’s providing the information. We’re looking for clues to help us determine if the information is reliable. Finally, Google may be the world’s most popular search engine, but it’s the last place we visit for Internet research. Google searches are based on keyword queries and cannot be adjusted to meet the research needs of a 9 year old.

  • The final reality at Edgewood is that the Internet is a place where all voices, big and small, can be heard. Through blogs, wikis, and podcasts students have that voice. You can find podcasts on at least three Edgewood web sites -- Classical Cafe, the Historical Society, and Edgewood News.

  • The Media Club is a lunch club where students work on slides for Eaglevision and audio stories or photographs to be published on EN. Students develop ideas and teachers provide both editorial and technical guidance.

    When we publish student work to a web site, we only use the first name, no last name. This applies to print and audio work. When we upload a video we show the student’s face, but we do not include a first or last name. We try to balance the sensitivity towards uploading personal information to the web with the need to give appropriate credit to the student who created the work.

  • These are the realities at Edgewood. We’re striving to create a community of learners, leaders, participants on a world stage. We start by giving students here opportunities to pursue their interests and passions and the guidance to help get them there.

    Cue Whitney Houston song... children are the future...
  • I’m going to end this presentation with the words of Adora Svitak, who is 12 and recently presented at a TED conference, Technology, Education & Design... and her thoughts on what parents can learn from children.
