Discussion points Who has ever ‘googled’ their own name? Why did you ‘google’ yourself? What could your digital footprint tell others about you?
To share or not to share ……. Personal information is more general information about a person which might be considered okay to share online. Private identity information is information about a person that should not shared online.

What is cyberbullying? How does it differ from other forms of bullying?
Cyberbullying is....... ‘the use of Information Communication Technology (ICT), particularly mobile phones and the Internet, to deliberately hurt someone....’
How does it differ? Cyberbullying is not face-to-face The person doing the bullying may be unaware of the consequences of their actions. The person doing the bullying might try and hide who they are
How does it differ? Cyberbullying can reach large audiences very quickly Most cyberbullying takes place outside of school in the community.
How do children sometimes tease each other online? Send jokes back and forth Alter photos of one another, in a funny (not mean) way Anything else?
When does teasing “cross the line” into cyberbullying? The teasing begins to feel scary and not funny anymore You feel unable to stop what’s happening You feel worried about your safety
Which me should I be? Avatar Does anyone have an avatar? What does the word mean?
Talking about your avatar. Is your avatar’s online personality similar or different from who you are in real life? How did they feel when you were going around the room as their avatar? Did they behave differently than they would have if they had just been going around the room as themselves?
Talking about your avatar. For those who have used avatars on the Internet, is their avatar like them or different? What kinds of things does your avatar do that are like you? What kinds of things does it do that are different?
