In collaboration with Common Sense Education, this lesson helps students learn to think critically about the user information that some websites request or require. Students learn the difference between private information and personal information, distinguishing what is safe and unsafe to share online. Students will also explore what it means to be responsible and respectful to their offline and online communities as a step toward learning how to be good digital citizens.
As students spend more time on computers, they should be aware that the internet is not always a safe space. In this lesson, students are taught what information is safe to share and what information should remain private. Students will create "superheroes" and learn what it means to be a Digital Citizen on the internet.
Students will be able to:- compare and contrast their responsibilities to their online and offline communities.- understand what type of information can put them at risk for identity theft and other scams.- reflect on the characteristics that make someone an upstanding citizen.- devise resolutions to digital dilemmas.
