Digital Citizenship: Thing 8

#1.  Because of all of the recent suicides (including a 12 year old here in Coloma), and having grandchildren in elementary school, I have researched Bullying, which includes Themes 5, 7 and 8.  I want to share the following sites with my Adult Ed students and friends who have school aged children:

#2.  I have included the above in my Face of My Classroom

#3. I shared the video “Oversharing:  Think Before You Post” with a teacher in the Milwaukee Public Schools, who has taught at several inner city high schools. I asked her what she thought about using this as a homeroom activity:  Show the video and use it as a spring board for class discussion.

Take a look at the video:
Oversharing:  Think Before You Post
It has 10 Rules and is aimed at inner city kids:
Remember the Golden Rule
Don’t Brag
TMI
Think about the reader
Keep relationship details to yourself
Don’t be cryptic
Quit complaining
Don’t post what you don’t want your grandmother to see (Curate_
Change your settings:  private
Post Smart, spread love
This her response:  “Is the video a flocabulary vid? “(yes) “Those are great. I use them a lot.

The video is informative and … is an awesome video. I’d say it was great.”

  1. Awareness is the first means of defense against bullying, cyber issues, and online security. The more you are able to share and educate the individuals around you, the more you are helping them out! Keep it up.
