Finish Shmoop Day 1 Cyberbullying

Step 4 (15-20 mins):  Pick one type of Cyberbullying (or tactic, as they're called in the Internet Safety 101 article from Step 1).

The types of bullying tactics are listed below. (Students should refer to the Internet Safety 101 article for definitions.)

  • Gossip

  • Exclusion

  • Impersonation

  • Harassment

  • Cyberstalking

  • Flaming

  • Outing and trickery

  • Cyberthreats

Each person creates a "group chat" about the type of bullying, how the victims can get help, and who they can get help from.

The skits should each present at least one way to resolve the particular type of cyberbullying.  

Each skit "chat" will be written out on their Shmoop Day 1 Google Doc.



Example: 
Gossip:
1. Student A: Oh my gosh, Joey won’t stop spreading rumors about me online! (Line 1)

2. Student B: What a jerk! What are you going to do to get him to stop? (Line 2)

3. Student A: I think I am going to go talk to my Counselor and see what she says. (Line 3)

4. Student B: Oh that would be a good idea, you can also... (Line 4)

5. Student A: Yeah I could do that, but I don't want him to get in trouble, just to stop (Line 5)

---Student A goes to Counselor
6. Student A; Hey Ms. Williams... (Line 6)

7. Mrs. Williams: blah blah blah (Line 7)


20 Lines of dialogue total!!!


Remember there are many different ways in which cyberbullying can take place and many ways to try and

resolve it if/when it happens.

SHMOOP #3 – Internet Privacy and Security Activity: Without A (Big) Trace: Managing Your Digital Footprint

Instructions

Objective: Students scatter e-tracks online every day – big and small, positive and inappropriate, those that reach a few friends and others that hit hundreds or more viewers. Students may not be aware of all the information that companies collect about them and use. In this activity, students play investigator and assess their online activities and the kinds of digital tracks that they are leaving online. Students consider the implications of their "digital tattoos" and do action research to piece together the footprints that they've left behind – deliberately or not – on the information super freeway.

Materials Needed: 

  • Computers with Internet access

Step 1 (5 mins):  Class watch a quick video introducing the concept of a digital footprint.

Class Discussion:  

  1. Have you ever considered that everything you do online might be seen by others?

  2. What websites do you like to go on, and what do you do on them? What websites do you have usernames for?

  3. With all the things you've posted on the Internet already, is there anything you wouldn't like the whole world to be able to see?

Step 2 (5 mins):  Class watch a video of digital footprint non-taxicab confessions (created by the Digital Tattoo Project) and class discussion to answer the following questions:

  1. What types of information do the first three or four individuals in the video think is out there about them on the Internet? Is it appropriate? Do you think they all feel good about it? Why or why not? 

  2. What info do you think is out there about you online? Do you feel good about what's out there? Why or why not? 

  3. When it comes to the Internet, is it helpful or harmful to have a common name that a lot of other people also have?

Step 3 (15 mins): According to the website, a digital tattoo is "your digital identity. Just like a tattoo, your digital reputation is an expression of yourself. It is formed and added to by you and others over time."  Follow instructions on the left-hand side of the websites and search for your names (first and last together possibly in quotation marks) on the following websites:


Search for yourself and Parents/Adults in your life:


In addition, search for yourself on:

Take notes on all the information you are able to find out about yourself. At half time, search the Web for someone else and record all the information that you find out about them.

Step 4 (5 mins):  Class discussion on the following questions:

  1. So tell me some of the things that you found out about yourself or the adults in your life. Did any of them surprise you? Are you surprised to find that information about yourself publicly available? 

  2. Were you alarmed by anything that you found about themselves/others online? If so, can you think of what action, if any, you might take about this to have the information removed? 

  3. Did you find out anything surprising about your family?

Step 5 (10 mins):  Copy & paste the following questions into a Google Doc and answer the questions in complete sentences, restating the question in your answers.  Class watches "Digital Dossier"  

  1. What is a digital dossier? 

  2. When does it start? 

  3. What is the first ever part of Andy's digital dossier? 

  4. When Andy is born, what information does his digital bracelet have? 

  5. When Andy goes on Neopets, what information does he provide about himself? 

  6. What information does Andy post on Facebook? What does Facebook do with this information? 

  7. What does Google do with the searches that Andy performs? 

  8. What happens when Andy buys something from Amazon? 

  9. What does Andy's cell phone GPS do? 

  10. What happens when Andy gets married? 

  11. What will happen to Andy's dossier when he dies? 

  12. Think about what you found out about yourself in our previous activity. What does your digital dossier say about you?

SHMOOP – Internet Safety and Ethics Activity: The Golden Rule Goes Online: Preventing and Stopping Cyberbullying


Objective: Being a member of an online community doesn't just mean understanding what browsers and cookies are and keeping a handle on your private information. Using the Internet comes with certain responsibilities to others, namely, being a cool digital citizen. One of the main parts of being a good digital citizen is having respect for others and shutting down cyberbullying.

In recent years we've seen many examples in the news of the dangers of cyberbullying. Students have skipped a lot of school, suffered serious depression, and even committed suicide, thanks to cyberbullying. Students need to learn about the damage that can be done by bullying or by being a passive bystander. In this activity, students identify what cyberbullying looks like and how to end it.


Step 1 (10 mins):  As a class we will watch the video on this website and then you will independently read the Internet Safety 101 webpage on cyberbullying the website. Afterwards, copy & paste the following questions into a Google Doc you create

  1. What is cyberbullying? 

  2. Have you ever cyberbullied anyone? Has anyone ever cyberbullied you?

  3. Have you ever seen someone else be cyberbullied? Did you do anything to stop it? If not, what could you have done? 

  4. What percentage of teenagers report being cyberbullied in the last year? 

  5. What are the different kinds of cyberbullying listed on the website? What do they each mean? What technology do students use to cyberbully? 

  6. Why can it sometimes be easier to bully people over phones and the Internet than in person? 

  7. In the video, what does the teenage girl say that other people have done when they hacked into her accounts, using her password? 

  8. What does one boy do when he goes into the bathroom, to bully a classmate? What were the consequences? 

  9. What are some things that you and your parents can do to keep track of the information that results from cyberbullying? 

  10. What can students do to get help from cyberbullying?


Step 2 (10 mins):  Watch CNN's report on Hope Witsell's suicide and copy & paste the following questions.

  1. What did Hope send to her boyfriend? 

  2. What did another girl do with what Hope sent? How would you feel if someone did this to you? 

  3. What did Hope's mother warn her about? Why do you think Hope didn't listen?

  4. What did bullies do to Hope? 

  5. Why do you think Hope kept quiet about the bullying?

  6. What did bullies write about Hope in the Shields Middle School Burn Book? Have you ever seen stuff like that online?

  7. How did Hope's friends try to help her? Is there something more they could have done?

  8. Why did Hope commit suicide? 

  9. Do Hope's parents blame her school for her death? Why? 

  10. What did Hope's sister find online after Hope's death? 

  11. Do you know anybody who has ever been cyberbullied like this, or in other ways? If you feel comfortable, share the story. What did you do? If you could go back, what would you do differently?




Step 3 (5 mins): Go to the ABA website and as a class, we will read about the warning signs of cyberbullying and
how to stop a cyberbully. There is a video on this page as well, but it's mostly directed at parents.

Using your own words how would you explain the strategies for dealing with cyberbullies. 

List 5 tips for dealing with Cyberbullying


Step 4 (15-20 mins):  Pick one type of Cyberbullying (or tactic, as they're called in the Internet Safety 101 article from Step 1).

The types of bullying tactics are listed below. (Students should refer to the Internet Safety 101 article for definitions.)

  • Gossip

  • Exclusion

  • Impersonation

  • Harassment

  • Cyberstalking

  • Flaming

  • Outing and trickery

  • Cyberthreats

Each person creates a "group chat" about the type of bullying, how the victims can get help, and who they can get help from.

The skits should each present at least one way to resolve the particular type of cyberbullying.  

Each skit "chat" will be written out on their Shmoop Day 1 Google Doc.



Example: 
Gossip:
1. Student A: Oh my gosh, Joey won’t stop spreading rumors about me online! (Line 1)

2. Student B: What a jerk! What are you going to do to get him to stop? (Line 2)

3. Student A: I think I am going to go talk to my Counselor and see what she says. (Line 3)

4. Student B: Oh that would be a good idea, you can also... (Line 4)

5. Student A: Yeah I could do that, but I don't want him to get in trouble, just to stop (Line 5)

---Student A goes to Counselor
6. Student A; Hey Ms. Williams... (Line 6)

7. Mrs. Williams: blah blah blah (Line 7)


20 Lines of dialogue total!!!


Remember there are many different ways in which cyberbullying can take place and many ways to try and

resolve it if/when it happens.
