So, have you seen this … wrote this last year, and been working with Esther’s mum to get people reading it. Ask your parents if they’ve read it yet … or maybe they’re coming to listen
So who uses the internet? For what? Can we shout out names of e.g. Skype, Google, PPT, Word, what else? Stand up/down if you use them?
1 minute… What does it mean to ‘have a friend in me’? Discuss.
Yesterday were asked: “For the rest of the day, I want you all to be thinking of good digital deeds that you can be doing online to make sure that the internet is a better place for everyone. What will you do? Will you help your friends if they are being bullied online? If you know a lot about a service or app, will you help someone with their privacy settings? Will you say something nice to your friend online? Will you help someone get online to make sure they benefit from the internet as well? Whatever you choose to do, anything positive that’s created online can help make the internet a better place for everyone. It’s up to us to make sure that the internet is a great and safe place for everyone.” Ask what you’ve thought about doing since then. Talk to each other, then a couple to the front.
So, let’s look at some of the values that your school holds, and think about what might look like if we looked at those on the internet. Perhaps the most powerful way to help children understand the importance of values is to discuss with and show them the consequences of healthy and unhealthy values. A valuable lesson for them is that if they act in valued ways, good things will happen, and if they act according to bad values, bad things happen. Examples of this relationship can include good effort in school results in good grades, being compassionate to others causes others to respond in kind and being caught lying results in punishment and a loss of trust. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-jim-taylor/teaching-values_b_2194163.html Respect Responsibility Trust Co-operation Tolerance Perseverance Courage Peace Selflessness Charity Hope Unity Honesty Thoughtfulness Appreciation
What does it look like to treat someone with ‘respect’? Being nice to each other, helping each other out, sharing a link? What happens if you don’t? (Cyberbullying)
This is where courage might be required … how do you stand up to people? Do you need to say things are OK/not OK – be the first one to write something nice?
Who do you trust? 1 min video Be careful to ask questions… (Have a password agreed with your parents, and don’t go off with someone who doesn’t have the password). Online, you can have a chat, but no need to share the ‘intimate’ details).
How easy is it to say thank you to someone else? Say thanks for cuddle, sharing something, etc.. How could you say thank you on the internet (e.g. send an email to an aunty, once old enough use e.g. WhatsApp
Talk to older brothers/sisters, friends, teachers and parents if you’re worried about anything…
Thank you, listen to your parents, and enjoy exploring on the internet… see it as a big adventure!
