High School 101: Online Safety Learn the four R’s
High School 101: TOPIC HERE Recognize techniques used by online predators: o Grooming: trying to connect to a child or getting the child to be comfortable with him/her If an unknown person is trying to “get to know you”, let someone know immediately. Remember, predators often disguise themselves as children, but are adults! o Fishing: trying to figure out where a child lives by asking about hobbies or interests (“what is your favorite baseball team?”, “what was the weather like today?”) DO NOT GIVE OUT ANY OF THIS INFORMATION!!! o Mirroring: trying to mimic an emotion a child feels, stating they understand how the child feels o DO NOT FALL FOR THIS!!!
High School 101: ONLINE SAFETY Refuse to give out personal information o If someone is requesting personal information, do not give it to them!! o Once you’ve given your information, a person may want to meet you. o Below is a chart located on iSAFE.org regarding meeting “online friends”. This is very dangerous!! Meeting someone you meet online could put your life at risk!
High School 101: Online Safety Respond assertively if you ever feel uncomfortable online. o Exit the program, log off or turn off your computer, tell an adult or call the police o Do not actually respond by writing back or messaging them. You should exit the program and inform an adult. THAT IS YOUR RESPONSE!
High School 101: Online Safety Report to a trusted adult o If you suspect any suspicious behavior or you are made to feel uncomfortable, TELL SOMEONE!! Tell an adult that you trust: parent, teacher, doctor, police officer, etc.
High School 101: Online Safety Tips to follow: o Guard your identifying information (name, gender, age, address, school, teams). o It only takes a little information for a predator to identify you. o Always remember, responsible adults do not pursue relationships with kids and teens. o Make your username generic and anonymous. o Make your online profile generic and anonymous. o Know how to exit an inappropriate website. o Attachments in e-mails from strangers can contain Viruses and Worms. o Pictures are great to hand to a friend, but it's not cool to send them to an Internet 'friend.' o Posting your picture on the Internet gives hackers the chance to change your picture repost it to everyone on the World Wide Web. o Chat room 'friends' are not always who they say they are. o Know the rules about Intellectual Property.
