Based on the previous activity in class of providing your favorite websites and apps on your phones I have been watching to see how good you have all been. Today it is my goal to make sure you are being safe online and protecting what is yours. I have been online and seeing what you do and to show you how your personal information is so easy to track let’s see who I have been able to follow in this room.
1. All Stand Up
2. Would all the Boys sit down
– What does this show?
3. If you do not use Instagram on your phone you can sit down.
– What does this show?
4. If your name is not Reli, you can sit down…thanks Reli…all good…you are safe..
Ultimately I asked 3 questions and most of them were not personal but general and see how fast I was able to have people sit down? What does this show?
Sequence of Activities:
K-W-L on board
What do you KNOW about being safe on the internet?
What do you WANT to know about being safe on the internet?
Public vs. Private Information
Student with the partners fill out a chart giving example of
Private or Public Information
Each group will send one up to the board to write their answers
Hoping to get the following for being Private
* full name

* name of school
* school address
* email address
* home phone number
* cell phone number
* parent’s place of work
* photos in which you can be recognized
