Cyber Safety

Page history last edited by pbworks 4 years, 1 month ago


High school students (and their teachers) can learn about being safe online with self-directed and group study of the resources selected below. For example, we can use videos (like That's Not Cool, for example) as writing prompts leading in to small group discussion reporting out to the larger group. With two class periods, we can browse available online resources (with headsets to watch videos independently) during most of the first session, with time for reflection and assessment of the status quo. Students can clean up their profiles as they like before sharing them as appropriate during a second session.

When considering Internet use, safety and security have particular meanings, which may include

  • Personal safety online - not giving out too much information, etc.
  • Safety from phishing, and from viruses
  • Protecting oneself legally by respecting copyright
  • For teachers: getting permission from parents to use materials
