Internet Safety and Digital Literacy For Schools Grades 4-5

Internet Safety and Digital Literacy Education 101 For Elementary Schools

 

 

Helping Students To Proactively Understand The Enabling Power Of Digital Technology and Mobile Communications, But Also How To Mitigate The Sometimes UnIntended Consequences Of High Risk/Undesirable Online Behaviour 

 

This session, which is compliant with the BC’s Digital Literacy Framework for schools, is designed to provide grade 4 and 5 youth with the fundamental knowledge that is necessary to engage in today’s online social environments. With over 25 years of experience in safety and online security training, The White Hatter Team have recognized a serious need to address these concerns at an earlier age. Young people today are far more knowledgeable about technology than the generation before them. It is vital to encourage and empower kids, as well as provide them with the proper tools and knowledge to be able to ensure their safety as they have the potential to do some really amazing and innovative things in these online settings. However, excitement and passion can blind anyone, not just students, to the potential dangers of being connected to everyone and everything at any given time. 

 

The White Hatter conveys the importance of privacy and the lack thereof online. We show students the significance of etiquette online, and how someone should portray themselves as their digital footprint or digital dossier is always recorded and easily searchable. We provide methods and tips on how to stay safe from cybercriminals. Lastly, we address cyberbullying and online aggression as a serious offense that can have serious legal, social, personal, and psychological consequences.

 

The overall theme of this presentation is to urge our young audience to understand that nothing we do online is private, even if a screen name is used. Whether someone is committing a crime, or simply posting their latest selfie, everything is tracked and searchable. Even cyberbullies who feel protected by the cloak of anonymity online aren't hidden as much as they would like to think.
