5 Myths and Truths About Kids' Internet Safety | Digital Citizenship for Students, Teachers, and Parents | Scoop.it

Linda Dougherty's insight:

Good information to also share with parents, especially about their child's digital footprint and how to keep it private.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 8, 6:39 PM

The first one is pretty important as all children do not turn into bullies. It makes sense that not all kids who use the Internet will turn into bullies. My guess is it would probably be about the same statistical occurrence as pre-Internet, but the footprints are saved.

 

Bullying is a complex and lived experience that is often a product of being bullied and having seen bullying go unchecked. Teachers and other adults who are good role models digitally and in person greatly help the cause of helping children.

Kate JohnsonMcGregor's curator insight, June 9, 9:06 AM

I have to agree with Gwyneth Jones in that, "there is no safety, only awareness" when teaching kids digital literacy. These are some great myths that need to be understood so that we can better equip our kids to navigate both the real and virtual world effectively.

A Difference: Digital Citizenship Using Visual Metaphors | Digital Citizenship for Students, Teachers, and Parents | Scoop.it
While Digital Citizenship Week has come and gone it's important to keep the conversations going. If you missed Digital Citizenship week it's never too late to get started.


Here's a practical hands on tool kit shared on Craig Bandura's blog he calls The Digital Citizenship Survival Kit. It's an excellent way to use physical prompts and metaphorical thinking to help kids understand how to behave ethically online. While Craig uses this kit with students in kindergarten through Grade 8 it'll work well with students of any age."
