Cyber Bullying Level 6
Hey Everybody! My name is Tek. I ’ m going to be your guide today! I ’ m a part of i-SAFE, and we are concerned with helping you to be safe online. We want you to recognize and avoid dangerous, destructive or unlawful online behavior, and we hope to empower you to communicate what you learn from i- SAFE with others.
In this lesson, you will be completing a KEWL chart as a learning activity. The Plan
KEWL Stands for what we KNOW Stands for Expanding our knowledge Stands for What we want to learn Stands for Leading others in Learning
KEWL Chart – Cyber Security K Know E Expand Knowledge W What was Learned L Lead others in Learning KEWL Chart – Cyber Security This is what the chart looks like. You can copy it on your paper. You can also complete it as a class on an overhead
All Right – Let’s Get Started First we brainstorm!!!
What do we know about Bullying? What is Cyber Bullying? List your answers in the K column of the chart. This column forms a foundation of what you currently know about bullying. Also list what you know about cyber bullying. Hopefully you are somewhat familiar with both and able to give basic information. Sample question and answer: Q. What is bullying? What is cyber bullying? A. Mean behavior, mean/harassing behavior online, etc.
Ok – so now that we have figured out what we know – time to find out what else we need to know! This information goes in the E (expanding your knowledge) column
Expand Your Knowledge Where is your knowledge lacking? What more do you feel you should know about bullying and cyber bullying? Sample questions to go in this column: 1.What are rules concerning bullying at school, in your community? 2.How is cyber bullying different from other types of bullying? 3.What types of actions online are considered bullying?
Great – Now let’s see what we can learn. We’re going to take a look at the cyber bullying and netiquette fact sheets to learn more about both.
Let’s Take a Closer Look at the Bully Facts
"All cruelty springs from weakness.” (Seneca, 4BC- AD65) Bullying has become an online event as well as a physical one. Intimidation online can be just as bad, and in some cases worse, than when bullying occurs in the physical community.
Bullying Bullies are those people who gain gratification (a sense of happiness) when they have provoked or tormented others. They feel better by making others feel worse. Cyber bullies are those bullies who use the Internet to be mean to others.
Bullying provides one method of communication for these bullies. Flame mail – mail designed to make another person mad – is used along with hate mail – mail that shows racism, sexism, or other prejudices. Another way bullies use the Internet is through bulletin boards and chat sites to make their comments public. Finally, some cyber bullies build Web sites devoted to making a person or persons feel bad.
Think About It! Do you think it’s a sign of strength or weakness to use the Internet for bullying? Why?
Tell someone. Don’t keep this to yourself. Tell a trusted adult about the bullying. Don’t open or read messages by Cyber bullies. Tell the police if threatened. Tell your Internet Service Provider. Tell your school if it is school related. Schools have a bullying plan in place. Don’t erase the messages – they may be needed to take action. Instead, put them in a folder unread. Protect yourself – never agree to meet with the person or with anyone you meet online. If bullied through chat or instant messaging, the “bully” can often be blocked. Tell someone!
Don’t give out private information such as passwords, pins, name, address, phone number, school name, or family and friends names. This information can be used by bullies and other harmful people on the Internet. Use Netiquette. Be polite online and others will tend to do the same. If someone does get angry or bullies you, ignore them – online Cyber bullies want a reaction just like other bullies. Don’t send a message when you are angry – it is hard to undo things that are said in anger. Delete messages from people you don’t know or from people who seem angry or mean. When something doesn’t seem right, it probably isn’t. Get out of the site, chat, etc.
Time for Discussion What are some ways that people could be bullied online: through , chatting, bulletin boards, Web sites, etc. Has anyone in the class ever been bullied online?
Community Today we are talking about the online community and cyber bullying. However, you probably take part in many communities – your school community, your neighborhood community, etc. Each community has its own rules and roles. What types of rules and roles do you think the online community has?
Netiquette Let’s take a look at the Netiquette page. How do you think Netiquette can prevent online bullying?
Use Meaningful Subject Lines Tell the person what you are sending to them so they know what to expect when the message is opened. Don't Type With ALL CAPS This is known as online screaming, and is considered to be rude. Think Before You Type It’s easy to be misunderstood in Cyberspace – be clear about what you want to say. Don’t send a message when you are angry – it’s hard to undo things that are said in anger. Use Emoticons to help others understand what you mean. Netiquette
Think About Attachments Don’t send something as an attachment if it can be copied and pasted into the text. Don’t send really large attachments. Don’t send attachments with viruses. And…be careful of attachments you download. Don't Spam Don’t send out messages that aren’t wanted! Don't Pass Around E-Hoaxes Use your favorite Internet search engine to learn the truth about the latest e-hoaxes, urban myths, chain and pervasive riff-raff circulating on the Internet. Don’t mislead others and cause alarm or stress. Don't Pass Around Chain Letters They are annoying. Netiquette
Chatroom and Instant Messaging Many of the same conventions that apply to newsgroups and are also relevant in chatrooms. You're still just typing your thoughts and sending them to people, but in a chatroom, they're just a little quicker to respond. Avoid Using ALL CAPS It’s still considered yelling. Decide What Tone the Conversation Has Before Posting Don't use offensive language or nicknames. Always avoid making personal attacks and calling names.
Chatroom and Instant Messaging Don't "Flood" the Chatroom Flooding is repeating messages over and over, or filling the screen with gibberish, in order to impede communication in the chatroom. Be Nice to Newbies If someone stumbles into your chat, who is obviously new to this medium, show them some patience and help them get the hang of it.
Most of these "netiquette rules" are really just common sense. Give people you meet online the same respect you would give someone in person.
:-) :-( :-( :-) Emoticons stand for emotion icons. They are used to convey emotion in writing. When ing, IMing, or chatting, writers use emoticons to show when joking, upset, or angry. They are useful so that someone doesn’t take something written the wrong way.
Emoticons are made of a sequence of characters on your keyboard. The most common emoticon is the smile. It is used to tell people – don’t take what I said seriously or I meant it as a joke or in good humor. A smile is made up of a colon for the eyes, a dash for the nose, and the right parenthesis for the smiling mouth.
Here are some Emoticons for you to use :-)Standard Smiley – Shows you are kidding around or in a good mood. :-(Frown – Shows you are upset about something ;-)Winking :-DLaughing :-/Undecided or confused :-QShows Confusion :-OShows surprise or realization of an error
I hope you learned something. I know I did! All right – Time for an Activity!!! Let’s put that Netiquette to good use! You can do this as a whole class, in small groups, or as a race
Online Chat Aptitude Your teacher will give you a worksheet called Online Chat Aptitude. Correct this chat session! Its participants are making some netiquette mistakes. Can you find all of the errors in this session that aren’t very nice?? Also, add in fun emoticons to make sure the messages show the correct emotion. When you’re finished we’ll go over it together!
Don’t Peek!!! The next few slides contain the answers to the Online Chat Aptitude worksheet – so make sure you have it finished! As you go through the answer key – discuss the changes and suggestions.
Jake: Hi Mallory: Hi Beth: HEY Y’ALL, HOW YOU DOING?Don’t use all caps – it’s considered shouting. Mallory: You idiot? Don’t you know better? Take some time to learn some netiquette. You should be nice to new chatters. Don’t be too critical – if joking using emoticons. Jake: XDJFEWajskdfl;wijk Don’t type gibberish in chats. Diane: what was that? Jake: XDJFEWajskdfl;wijk Mallory: Ok, that is just getting plain annoying. Jake: XDJFEWajskdfl;wijk Alex: As the moderator of this chat, I will be forced to kick you out if you keep this up. Moderators can kick you out of chats for not following netiquette. It is best to participate in moderated chats for safety reasons.
Diane: Jake, I got your off your profile. Make sure you read what I sent you! 1. NEVER fill out a profile with personal information. This is dangerous. 2. ing people without permission can be considered spamming and is annoying. Mallory: I read that you sent me. What were you thinking? Do you really believe that junk? I mean who honestly WANTs to go to school all year? You find someone to agree with you and I’ll show you a real freak! This is an inflammatory statement and can lead to harassment, etc. Be careful of what you say and how you say it online. You can disagree without insulting. Use emoticons! Beth: Look, I’m outta here. As a newbie I feel stomped upon. You guys should learn some manners. This new chatter is leaving because others were rude. Remember to be kind to new chatters.. Mallory: Yeah right, so says the dummy who didn’t know caps were shouting. Again, an inflammatory statement. If joking use emoticons. Diane: Mallory you are so out there! Jake: DJSKFLWN K – bye gibberish!
Ok – Returning to our Chart Hmmm, What comes next? Oh yes, What have we learned about Cyber Bullying???
What have we learned? Now that we have covered Cyber Bullying, what have you learned from your information sheets? Check the “what you want to know” questions to ensure you have answered them all! Sample question and answer: Q. What do we know about cyber bullying now? A. Cyber bullying occurs when students write harassing/flame s, post negative Web sites, and are mean/cruel in instant messaging and chat rooms.
Make Sure You Have Covered: 1.Bullying means to use mean language or actions towards others. 2.Bullies intend to cause fear or avoidance from others for their victims. 3.Bullies are found in both the physical and cyber communities. 4.Online bullying can be just as intimidating as face-to- face bullying. 5.Using netiquette is an effective way to prevent online bullying. 6.Resources for reporting bullying incidents include trusted adults, the ISP provider, school personnel, and the police if it involves illegal activity, direct threats, etc.
And Last, but not Least We need to come up with some empowerment activities. This means to brainstorm how we can help others learn about Cyber Bullying.
Leading Others in Learning This section allows you to identify ways to own the knowledge you have learned. By spreading knowledge to others, you continue your own learning. In this column brainstorm ways to spread knowledge. Sample questions and answers: Q. How can we spread what we have learned? A. Talk to parents about what learned. Give presentations to others, design posters, incorporate peer-to-peer communication.
How Do you Know When You’re Done? Have you: 1. Covered all the reference sheets? 2. Discussed with your class what you have learned? 3. Completed the Online Chat Aptitude worksheet? 4. Completed the KEWL Chart?
