Digital Citizenship

Digital Citizenship:

AO: Identify risks and their causes and describe safe practices to manage these. 

Group students into 10 even groups and provide each group with a computer.  Groups will explore the ten activities. Each group will be allocated leaders. Some activities will require Teacher direction.  This will be indicated next to the activity.

Activity One: Pause & Think Online
Animated characters demonstrate how to be safe, responsible, and respectful offline and online. By focusing on different body parts, the characters illustrate how to pause and think online.


Play and watch the video

Ask each group member when have they been required to pause and think online?

Share examples of when have you have not paused and thought online and how you felt.

Look at the poster.

How do you protect our private information? If you do not know, record this in your booklet.
How can we show respect for ourselves and others?
How can we balance our online time with other things?
How can we stand up to cyber bullying?
What do you  do to stay safe online?

Design your own poster that gives the same message

Write a role play showing the consequences of what happens if we forget to pause and think online

At home: Explain what we have learnt about pausing and thinking online. Ask people at home if they have ever forgotten to pause and think online.

Activity Two: Digital Footprints

Why is it important to have a good digital footprint? Why does it matter?

What can you learn from Eva's story?

Think about your online activity - what does it say about you as a person? Would you be happy with the whole world seeing everything you did online?

Watch this

Do you think it is okay to have a online presence even before you are born?

Activity 3 - Disconnect to Connect

Disconnect to Connect
Watch the Youtube clip and write down what you think the video is talking about.
Take time to think about if you, or someone you know has acted like this. Why do you think people do this?

On a sticky note write your name and the number of hours you were online on Monday. Add it to the graph on the wall.

Do you think Cyber bullying is the same as traditional Bullying, do a Venn diagram to see what they share and what is unique to each.

Activity 7 Cyber Bullies

Watch this NZ Short Film

The 4 types of bystanders:

    * Assistants: join in on bullying and help the bully
    * Reinforcers: laugh and encourage the bully but don’t personally attack the target
    * Outsiders: don’t get “involved”, but see it happen
    * Defenders: Try to stop the bullying on behalf of the target

How bystanders can help

Defenders can be very effective in addressing cyberbullying situations. Cyberbullying
defenders can avoid the physical dangers of intervening in face‐to‐face bullying situations.

Bystanders can intervene anonymously – by telling someone/reporting abuse – and secretly
– by talking directly to the target without an audience.

Bystanders to a cyberbullying situation help the person being bullied by letting them know
that they support them.

Bystanders can save the evidence of the bullying and report the bullying to someone who
can help (e.g., a principal at school, a parent or caregiver, etc.).

In your group discuss the four kinds of bystanders:

What would an ASSISTANT do if someone was being picked on in the Pukerua Bay school playground?

What would a REINFORCER do if someone was being picked on in the Pukerua Bay school playground?

What would an OUTSIDER do if someone was being picked on in the Pukerua Bay school playground?

What would a DEFENDER do if someone was being picked on in the Pukerua Bay school playground?

CREATE a mini-poser or comic strip (or other kind response) to show your understanding of the four kinds of bystanders.

Activity 8
Social Networking 

Watch the clip.

Answer these questions

Why do you think Little Red Riding hood accepted the wolf's friend request?

Why did the wolf use a different face for his profile pic?

How did the wolf know that Little Red Riding hood was going to her Grandmas house?

What could happen if you posted that you were home alone on a social networking site?

List all the social networks that your group knows of (eg Facebook, Edmodo, etc).
Which ones are the safest networking sites? What are you reasons for choosing these?

Activity 9

Watch this clip.

Discuss in your group where any pictures of you are online. Are they public? Could anyone access them?
Do you have conversations online with anyone that you do not know?
What would you do if someone you didn't know (but they looked really cool) sent you a friend request?
Do you know anyone who is friends with someone online that they do not know?  What advise could you give them?

Activity 10
Are you in control?
In your groups discuss this poster:

Have you ever posted a picture of your friend online without their permission?
Have you ever said anything online that you would hate your parents, teacher, or grandparents to see?

Visit this website and check out what they have to say about Chatting, IM, eMail, Mobiles, Chatrooms, Social Networking, File sharing, gaming, and cyber bullying.
