Being a good digital citizen is important whether you are at home, work or school. We are focusing on staying safe when Communicating Online Speak slowly and clearly

Ask staff to assist with the organisation of students

Communicating online through social networking sites can be really positive. It can keep you connected to friends and family, encourage creative self-expression and sharpen writing skills. What is "friending?" "Friending" is where members of a social networking site accept someone to their list of friends. Why do people want to build up their friends list? To feel popular or wellliked. -2Technology Workshop #2 Lesson Plan May 2011

Activity 1: Online Video

We are going to watch a video which explores some of the issues when online communication gets out of hand Lets look at the video Post to be private What is Slick trying to tell Allie about having her profile set to private? Even if your profile is set to private, you should still think before you post and add only people you know in real-life to your friends list. Talk to the person next to you about how many friends are on your list and how many of them you actually see in real life (2 mins) A good rule of thumb is to only add people that you would talk to in real life. If you would not have a chat to that person if you ran into them on the weekend, then you probably dont know them well enough to add them to your friend list.

Have this website ready to go. Also check the sound at the beginning of the lesson

Ask staff to assist with keeping students on task and using questions to get relevant responses.
