Tools for online activity: Good internet connection/pens – pencils for each participant/online tool for video calls
Brief description of the activity:
While the internet can be a great resource to help students prepare for tests and do research for assignments, as well as stay in touch with their friends, it’s still important for them to be safe when using technology — especially social media sites For this activity the teacher/educator will need a Flipchart and markers for each participant. After the teacher/educator discuss the definitions on the previous phase now she/he can give the group an exercise. Divide the group in two.
1. Let the first group write on the Flipchart all the disRESPECTful things that could happen to them online.
2. The second group are going to write on another Flipchart paper all the possible ways to avoid this harmful behaviour or to CONDEMN it. (block the person, delete messages, report the comments, etc.)
After the two groups are ready, read all the statements and if there are more suggestions add them to the Flipcharts. This will help the children to start thinking more critical on the content they see surfing on the Internet.
