5 Myths and Truths About Kids' Internet Safety

Advice from Common Sense Media editors. Help keep your kids' online experiences positive and productive by learning the truth (and ignoring the rumors) about what really makes them safe.

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, 2014 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, 2014 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.

Sarah's curator insight, January 15, 2014 12:33 PM

So many teens have social media and use a variety of sites!

Rachelle Wright's curator insight, May 15, 2015 3:17 PM

Only 10 percent of teenagers do not use social media.  I know one of my good friends has no social media.  It surprises me that she has not gotten at least Facebook yet.  Social media has never been something that was important to her.  I applaud her for that.  I like social media because I can see what my friends are up to and keep an eye on them.  The growth of Instagram has increased 5 percent while Facebook has decreased 9 percent in 2013.  Instagram and Snapchat are mostly used by teens ages 13 to 18.  61 percent of people use Tumblr and say it is their favorite.  I have never been on Tumblr.  I did not know it was that popular.  On social media sites 91 percent of people post photos of themselves.

"It’s a simple little prop I use when teaching Digital Citizenship to our pK-12 Aurora Huskies students, but I think it sends a powerful message. I love utilizing props to try to get my point across to students and thought that creating a kit full of props would be a great way to reinforce a very important topic in our schools."

This is a FANTASTIC IDEA!! So Clever!!

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, August 27, 2014 10:34 PM

This is a great idea - a kit of props to help the message sink in! Some of the props used are: 

 

- a padlock: to symbolise keeping data safe - who will you unlock your life and details to?

- a tube of toothpaste: like what you post online, once it is out it is almost impossible to out it all back in the tube!

- a permanent marker: everything that you put online is permanent—even if you hit the delete button after posting. 

 

Maybe you have a few other suggestions that might be useful to add to a survival toolkit!
