  1. 1. Creating an E-mail account to keep in contact with a Pen Pal • Students will have permission from parents about giving out personal information such as, name, age and gender • http://www.theteacherscorner.net/penpals/ • NB: Teacher to use this site in order to help find a country to PenPal • Whanaungatanga is the idea of creating relationships, through this activity students are creating relationships with Pen Pals. But this E-mail address may be used for other things in the future, such as communicating with parents (Ministry of Education, 2011).
  2. 2. • Give students the opportunities as groups to discuss information that they think will be appropriate to share with any website online. E.g. Name, age, gender, photos, phone numbers, address • Have a class discussion about the information that we share online.

  6. 6. Students are required to enter in first and last names. You will get a sheet of paper with your username and password on it. Your birthday must be entered, but only if your parents have signed consent for this information. By having parents consent to their children including their birthday and names on this site, it fits in with Ribbles Principle of Digital Security (Ribble, 2008-2009). Another aspect that fits in with this principle is, that students need to ensure that they are keeping their password to themselves and not sharing it with their friends.
  7. 7. Enter in your gender, but you do not have to enter in a mobile number or current email address. Why is it important that we don’t give this information away? At the bottom of this page, there is a prompt to enter in the number or word on the screen, do this and you can use the sound button if you have trouble hearing. Location is automatically entered. If you have consent from parents you can tick the “I agree” box, as this information has been discussed between the parents and children, when this is complete, press the “Next Step” button.
