Private & Personal Information
Goals and Objectives (Online & Personal Information)
- learn about the benefits of sharing information online, but also about the safety and security risks of sharing certain types of information.
- understand what type of information can put them at risk for identity theft and other scams.
- distinguish between personal information, which is safe to share online, and private information, which is unsafe to share.
Learning the Difference Between Private & Personal Information in the Classroom
Personal information should not be put out on the internet. This information can be used to identify you. This information includes you email, address, last name, phone number etc..
In my classroom students will learn to identify between the two.
1. I will give out worksheets of different examples and they will label what is private and what is personal.
Below is a helpful game for students learning the difference between private and personal.
Cyberbullying & Digital Drama
Cyberbullying Allignment with Louisiana Standards of Digital Literacy
Goals and Objectives (Cyberbullying & Digital Drama)
- empathize with those who have received mean and hurtful messages.
- judge what it means to cross the line from harmless to harmful communication online.
- generate solutions for dealing with cyberbullying.
My Future Classroom Stands Against Cyberbullying
In classroom Activities:
1. Create skits that show the class what cyberbullying is
2. Give cut out footprint shapes to each student. Students will then write in their own words what cyberbulling is and why we should not participate in mean behavior. Collect all the feet and have students help glue them on a big piece of poster. Title the poster "We stand against bullying" and hang it in the classroom or even in the hallway so other students can see.
Online Relationships & Communication
Goals and Objectives (Online Relationships & Communication)
- compare and contrast online-only friends and in-person, face-to-face pals.
- analyze why private information should not be given to anyone online without the permission of a trusted adult.
- debate how to respond if an online-only friend asks them personal questions.
1. If an adult that you do not know ever contacts you then tell your parents.
2. If anyone at anytime ever make you feel uncomfortable on the internet tell your parents.
3. If you are not comfortable to talk to your parents then tell a friend or even your teacher.
My goal as a teacher is to make every student comfortable enough with me. If a student is unable to talk to their parents about a scary situation then it is important for the students to have someone to talk to. It is after that when the teacher decides that the parents need to be informed.
