Helping students be cybersmart

Hi everyone, just a quick post to share a website with you. I found a website titled ‘Cybersmart’ on the Department of Education and Early Childhood development website. In the words of the ‘Cybersmart’ website:

‘Cybersmart provides activities, resources and practical advice to help young kids, kidsteens and parents safely enjoy the online world. Cybersmart also offers training and resources for schools and materials for library staff. Developed by the Australian Communications and Media Authority, Cybersmart is part of the Australian Government’s cybersafety program.’

Will also post this website into our Diigo group.

Click and enjoy 🙂

Sharing information on the internet

I have recently updated my profile page on Diigo by adding an avatar and writing in my blurb. While doing this I felt a little hesitant to add a photograph and share information about myself. Is anyone else worried about the privacy issues related to all of these difference websites? When adding your information to each of these sites how often do you think about who will read it or what you are sharing? I think this is an issue that needs to be explored with students in this internet age. What steps would you take as a teacher to make sure your students are being safe on the internet?

This comic if from the website ‘off the mark’ for more click here.

That’s all for now, thanks for reading 🙂
