Digital Cybersafety Kit

  1. 1. First digital citizenship survival kit!
  2. 2. Padlock The padlock is to remind students to set strong passwords and to set up passcode locks on all of their digital devices. "Lock 'em down" as we like to say in our Digital Citizenship lessons.
  3. 3. Permanent Marker Everything that you put online is permanent....even if you hit the delete button after posting. Odds are someone has retweeted, favourited, or taken a screenshot of the material if it was questionable.
  4. 4. Toothpaste Imagine the information that you are putting online is like the toothpaste coming out of the tube. Once it is out, it is almost impossible to get it all back in the tube!
  5. 5. Toothbrush I tell students to think that passwords and toothbrushes are very similar in the fact that you NEVER want to share passwords. (I do highly encourage/recommend that students to share passwords with parents)
  6. 6. House Key Students should share their password with the trusted adults in their home (parents/carers). (Comments)
  7. 7. Soap Too many times I see students that are posting, tweeting, retweeting information that is NOT appropriate. Remind them to keep it clean! (Comments)
  8. 8. New & Improved Digital Safety Kit Chris Badura
  9. 9. Pinterest COLLABORATION PAY IT FORWARD Lisa Johnson
  11. 11. Strainer The amount of information on the internet is amazing! As digital citizens, your students have to be good at "straining" out the bad stuff, what is real, what's not and finding material that is applicable to their search/use of the internet.
  12. 12. Plug In I used a six foot extension cord and cut it so that I have the male and female end together. I stress to students that it is okay to "unplug" (unplug as you are discussing). We don't have to be connected all the time! Get outside and be a kid!
  13. 13. Packet of Seeds Any packet of seeds will do for your kit. Students need to understand that what they are doing now could have an impact on them in the future. I want our students to think about the "seeds" that they are sowing as they traverse the world wide web.
  14. 14. Could it grow into a bigger problem? Or is their plant going to be a strong, positive representation of who they are?
  15. 15. Strainer The amount of information on the internet is amazing! As digital citizens, your students have to be good at "straining" out the bad stuff, what is real, what's not and finding material that is applicable to their search/use of the internet.
  16. 16. Mirror Imagine having the mirror attached to your computer/device. If you looked in it and saw someone in the reflection, would they approve of what you are doing or saying online?
  17. 17. Band Aids Our students are going to make mistakes. When you and I were younger we made mistakes, but our mistakes weren't Googleable. The mistakes kids make today will be Googleable. Hopefully our mistakes won't be too big. If a Band Aid won't help, then we have a problem!
  18. 18. Notebook I simply tell students to imagine all of the things they do while online. Now imagine if it were kept in a journal. Would they be comfortable if anyone could read that journal?
  19. 19. Magnifying Glass Remember when first impressions started with a handshake? Now they start with Google. People are using Google to find out information about us. What will show up when someone searches you on Google?
  20. 20. Pet Tie-Out Cable This will be geared towards parents. I encourage parents to set limits when it comes to being online at home. Set limits!
  21. 21. Sheet of Paper One of the most powerful items in the kit. I had read about this idea in a blog, and I enjoy using this with students. I take a new sheet of paper and hand it to a student instructing them to wad it up into a ball.
  22. 22. I then tell them to throw it on the ground....stomp on it. I then have them pick up the piece of paper and I unravel it in front of the class.
  23. 23. I tell the student that ruined the piece of paper to apologize to the piece of paper for destroying it. I get some weird looks and giggles, but after the student apologizes to the piece of paper I tell the students that the piece of paper represents someone’s heart that has been cyberbullied.
  24. 24. We can apologize all we want, but the emotional scars that remain inside DON'T go away.
  25. 25. Tattoos The term "Digital Tattoo" was introduced around 2010 as the term "Digital Footprint“ was reconsidered as footprints in the sand can be washed away.
  26. 26. Tattoos are a lot harder to get rid of.

  28. 28. Tattoos are permanent and so is your digital footprint. Posted on November 25, 2013 by Priya Venugopal Johnson said that many students benefit from attracting potential employers through profiles and blogs. Producing online content can be an opportunity for students to express themselves and be creative.
  29. 29. Here are several simple rules I try to follow in order to keep a positive digital footprint in cyberspace : Think before you post and interact. Be recent and relevant. Don't spam people with irrelevant information. Connect with positive and knowledgeable people.
  30. 30. Be positive and avoid negativity. Let your positivity be contagious. Be polite even if you'd rather be rude. Encourage and support whenever you can.
