- Share an activity idea or classroom resource that you have found online or created yourself that involves primary students exploring private and public information sharing. It could be a video, lesson plan, storybook, song or anything else!To answer this question, i would provide a research project for the children including common platforms such as facebook, Instagram and Pintrest. Lets see if we sent a photo of something simple such as a teddy bear sitting on our chair across the internet and social media. How far will it go? How many people will it reach? How many likes, dislikes, comments and shares will be created just by requesting to share this picture for experimental purposes. Its incredible seeing how far something so simple can go around the world into many different communities and places.
I would also considered doing similar with youtube but researching common videos and discussing the amount of views, likes, comments and shares the video has had. How that person has shared there information across the globe and how its important to only share learnt knowledge and not person information. Why do they go by nicknames or by a page name? Lets discuss this.
Another way to teach children about cyber safety and how we use social media is through engaging in games. There are many supportive networks providing children with ways to staying safe online. KidsSmart, CyberSecurity, Privacy Playground are just a few that can show the repercussions of a network.
