Digital Citizenship & Cyber Safety

  1. 1. Digital Citizenship & Cyber Safety Aislynn Denny Media Specialist Guilford Middle School
  2. 2. Topics  Digital Life & Digital Footprint  Social Networking (Privacy Settings & Friend Requests)  Cyberbullying  Flipped Lesson Plan  Shared Resources
  3. 3. Digital Life  Our Students are digital natives – the internet has always been a part of their lives.  On average students spend 4-5 hours online a day, more if they attend a 1-to-1 school.  Our curriculum requires more online research & interaction than ever before.  Many begin building their digital footprint in elementary school and some even earlier than that.
  4. 4. Digital Footprint  The “trail” we leave online  The trail comes from our e-mails, message board/forum posts, videos, tweets, status updates, and pictures  The trail can be followed by anyone with a little time and effort including future employers, college admissions officers, and scholarship committees.
  5. 5. Digital Footprint Activity – All grade levels  Part of the Common Sense Media “Trillion Dollar Footprint” lesson for Grades 6-8  After discussing that you can present the best possible version of you to the digital world have students think about what they want their digital footprint to be.  Give each student a “My Digital Footprint” handout and let them fill it in. Do one for yourself to show an example. Let them be creative – crayons, colored pencils, etc.
  6. 6. Digital Footprint - Middle School & High School  You are what you post  Nothing is truly deleted on the internet – it can always be found  Think about who you want to be, what face you want to show the digital world.  Video from Two Kinds of Stupid  Discuss the video with the students  What could Eduardo have done differently?
  7. 7. Digital Footprint Activity From Educational Technology & Mobile Learning – High School  Introduction to Digital Footprint – Show the Intro to Digital Footprint video from Common Sense Media  Digital Footprint Discussion  Ask the following questions:  If we were to look you up online what would we learn about you?  What are your digital footprints?  Is there anything online that you wouldn’t want your teacher or parent to know about you?  Show Digital Footprints TEDx Talk (may work best for high school, but 8th graders may enjoy it as well)  Student googles themselves – simply type in their full name  Can also use to get a more in-depth path  Con: Some industrious student might want to try to follow your path
  8. 8. Social Networking Privacy Settings & Friend Requests  All Social Networks have privacy settings  Students need to understand the difference between the types of privacy settings  Public – wide open!  Friends & Family – only the people you accept can see your updates & pictures  Private – only you can see it  Not every friend request needs to be accepted  Be aware – once the friend request is accepted your information is available for whatever purpose the other person may have.
  9. 9. Privacy Settings & Friend Requests Activity  Go over the different privacy settings that are commonly found online  Show a Facebook/Instagram/Twi tter page – use a student’s if you can get his or her permission as well as parental permission  Show the students how to change their privacy settings  Move on to Friend Requests  Rather than putting a student on the spot – use a screen shot of a public Facebook page with the personal information blacked out – except for the number of friends. Choose one with a large number of friends  Use this profile to kick start discussion before showing a video about friend requests if you can find a good one
  10. 10. Cyberbullying  Ask the students what they think Cyberbullying is  Give them the official definition  Provide them with information about the consequences of committing cyberbullying  Give them suggestions on what to do if they are victims of cyberbullying  Try to reinforce the fact that actions online impact other people.
  11. 11. Flipped Lesson  Flipping the lesson allows you to share the information without standing and lecturing for hours.  Let the students view the power point at home – add audio if you want to make additional points  Students then participate in group or individual activities in the classroom using the information they’ve learned already.  Allows greater engagement & personalized instruction as students move at their own pace.
