Most students will have a Facebook account (or similar) so this lesson is relevant to all students. The same principles apply when students are working in MyPortfolio, so it is important for them all to engage with this lesson, even if they don't think that they spend anytime online. The first task is for the students to complete the choice activity indicating whether they have a Facebook account. This is really just to give us some idea as to where students are at. You can view the student responses by CLICKing on the Facebook Choice Activity.
Resources: The resources area contains a wide range of links for students to engage with. Two of the links are compulsory and students will have to view them in order for the activities to be marked as complete. The others are voluntary and students can manually mark these as complete if they view them. It is recommended that students be encouraged to view as many of the resources as possible. The two compulsory resources are: Social Networking in Plain English. This is a video which explains in simple terms what we mean by Social Networking. The second one "Out of your hands" looks at what can happen when you post something online.
Tasks: There are two compulsory tasks and two optional tasks in the module. The compulsory tasks are for the students to watch the BrainPOP video on cyberbullying. This video explains what we mean by cyberbullying. If you need a username and password for the BrainPOP video it is: username: papanuihs password: 22papanuihs. At the end of the video there is also a quiz which you might want to get the students to complete but this isn't compulsory. There is then a page for them to read on cyberbullying. The other two tasks are related to what to do if you are being bullied and a quiz that the students can use to see if they are being bullied. These two tasks should be pointed out to the students and they should all know where to go to get help if they are being bullied.
