We have been updating our knowledge of Internet Safety and our Digital Citizenship and came across the graphic displayed in the photos about Digital Citizenship and Internet Safety tips for students. Our task was to create a blog post about one of the tips and explain what it means to them, plus some advice on how they can follow the advice on the tip sheet. Have a read to see what some of the students thought of.
All over Australia and all over the world people get bullied daily. It’s a horrible thing and hopefully one day it will be stopped. You can be bullied in many ways, like them saying it to your face, cyber bullying or sometimes people can leave mean notes. I don’t think some people realise the harm of bullying and just do it for fun. Bullying can lead to self harm or suicide. It’s definitely not something to be joking about or doing at all. If you or anyone you know is being bullied in the yard or any where, make sure you contact someone who can help. If someone messages you anonymously, don’t answer and make sure to tell someone. If you find someone leaving notes in your bag, talk to someone. Speaking to anyone will make you feel better. Never let anyone get to you. You are amazing the way you are and don’t need anyone to bring you down. Always remember that. You may have 99 problems but they ain’t going to be one.
Advice from a good internet child:
Online friends. I’ll tell you some sites that have them; Roblox, Facebook, Twitter, and much much more.
But online friends can have a very dark side. Parents would know that but the young children would not until now. There are some terrible men who try to take kids away from asking personal questions like; What’s your age? Where do you live? What’s your real full name?
If somebody asks you these questions if you are a child, unfriend, block, never look at their profile and never talk to them again.
It’s not just men who do this it’s also women. Remember unfriend, block, and no contact.
Being yappy online isn’t always a good thing. Actually, it’s never good. Here’s things that you shouldn’t share, and why you shouldn’t post them.
- Your full name. People could look you up, and possibly find things on google.
- Phone number. If you share this, random people could call you, and trick you into giving them some personal details.
- Passwords. If you share your password to, say, Facebook, people may go onto Facebook and go on your account. The next time you go on, there might be things that aren’t true, and random photos.
- Your address. This is a big one. if you share your address, people will know where you live. You might be robbed, or worse, murdered.
So there you have 4 helpful tips on cyber safety. Keep safe, and don’t be stupid.
What happens when you speak out of terms-
1. Imagine you’re playing joyfully on your Xbox in peace and you write a nasty comment about someone and you press send. You then get a message from Xbox live saying that your Xbox has been banned for ever. How would you feel? How would you feel if someone reported you because of your actions? I know I would feel terrible.
2. You’re out in the playground and someone comes up to you and asked you if he can play with you, and you say a sharp NO. He would feel terrible and he could tell you off and you would have to suffer the consequences.
My personal experience-
1. So I was playing my Xbox one day and I asked if I could play with one of my friends. You know what he said? He swore at me and said that he hated me. I felt so bad, that I un- friended him and reported him. So if you don’t want to be banned or get in trouble stop before you say and think and just walk away.
