"Student Posts Phone Number on Internet!"

  1. 1. BREAKING NEWS STUDENT POSTS PHONE NUMBER ON INTERNET PARENTS APPALLED TEACHERS TO BLAME By Quenna Beston, Darci Bratsch, Jordan Hinkle, and Kya Range
  2. 2. PARENTS AND EDUCATORS ASK “WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?” “After an Internet safety course, do students have a better understanding of what to post and what not to post?” “Does the school incorporate an Internet safety lesson into courses?” “Where is the line drawn between parents educating their children about Internet safety and teachers discussing the issue with them?” do students “What already know about Internet safety?” “How do we stress the importance of Internet safety?” “How do we prevent students from posting personal information that they want to share?”
  3. 3. WHAT ARE SCHOOL DISTRICTS DOING ABOUT IT? ON A COLLEGE LEVEL, ACCEPTIBLE USE POLICIES ARE IN PLACE. SCHOOL DISTRICTS IN IDAHO FALLS, IDAHO HAVE CODES OF STUDENT CONDUCT AND COMPUTER USE AGREEMENTS. PARENTS AND STUDENTS HAVE ACCESS TO INTERNET SAFETY SITES. FARGO PUBLIC SCHOOLS ARE PILOTING THE USE OF COMPUTER TABLETS IN MIDDLE SCHOOL CLASSROOMS TO SEE IF STUDENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE WITH THEIR INTERNET USE. VERNDALE PUBLIC SCHOOL IN MINNESOTA REQUIRES ALL 9TH AND 10TH GRADE STUDENTS USING AN IPAD (PROVIDED BY THE SCHOOL) TO SIGN AN INTERNET AGREEMENT FORM. PARENTS ARE PROVIDED INFORMATION ON WHERE THEY CAN FIND INTERNET SAFETY ADVICE.
  4. 4. ALL STUDENTS NEED TO BE AWARE WHETHER THEY ARE IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL MIDDLE SCHOOL HIGH SCHOOL OR COLLEGE EVERY STUDENT NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT INTERNET SAFETY
  5. 5. WHAT TEACHERS ARE DOING IN ELEMENTARY SETTINGS With Internet awareness rising in the elementary schools, teachers are looking to videos, websites, and lesson plans that discuss Internet safety for young children. They are using children’s websites to introduce the topic: • http://www.brainpopjr.com/artsandtechnology/technology/internetsaf ety/ • http://www.kn.att.com/wired/fil/pages/listinternetne.html They are using websites designed for teachers to incorporate Internet safety into lesson plans: • http://www.edutopia.org/blog/internet-safety-younger-elementarymary-beth-hertz • http://www.kgcs.k12.va.us/kges/isafe_resources_k_12.htm
  6. 6. HOW DO PARENTS AND EDUCATORS PROTECT MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS? With technology becoming more available to young adults, more discussion about digital citizenry is needed. Who’s responsible? Parents and educators are using helpful websites to introduce digital citizenry: •http://www.commonsense media.org/educators/curricu lum •www.networkworld.com In some schools, teachers are required to go through certain lessons on using technology, including citing sources, cyber bullying, identifying high-quality sites, etc. These lessons are taken from the Common Sense Media website that includes great resources to start conversations between educators and students. In order for these lessons to work, parents need to become involved in their child’s education and hold just as much responsibility with proper use of the technology as the students. In fact, parents have to sign the same contract as the students before the student is allowed to access the technology. Digital citizenship lessons are conversation starters for parents at home, as well as in the classroom.
  7. 7. KEEPING HIGH SCHOOLERS SAFE There are many positives that can come about while using social networking as long as it is done the right way. Providing personal information like a phone number only opens the door for strangers to get close to young people. The older students become, the more interested they are in social networking and sharing personal information. How do parents and teachers educate high school teens about keeping pictures, email, phone numbers, and even a home address safe? Parents are using websites that discuss how they can be involved in their children’s social networking lives in order to protect their security. These sites also provide detailed information on how to better educate children about the positives and negatives of social networking as a popular form of communication: •http://www.minormonitor.com/about/
