Suggestions for School Districts. . . .

The Technology Facilitator in every school district should be responsible for informing parents/guardians about what can happen to children while using the internet. Part of the Technology Facilitators job should be to create a presentation. This presentation should be presented at the beginning of every school year. It should be open to all Administrators, Educators, Parents and Students in the community.

The Technology Facilitator’s presentation should include the following:

  • Learning how to keep children safe & risk free of the Internet

  • Understanding technology tools that are available to our students

  • Find out what children and teens are commonly doing on the Internet

  • Understand potential life threatening scenarios

  • Understand “Social Networking”

  • Discuss school districts Acceptable Use Policy

Cyberbullying scenario
Cyberbullying Scenario . . .

“After rehearsal for the school play, Nicole remains in the auditorium by herself to practice dance moves, forgetting that the video camera is still on. The next day you and a friend discover the video of Nicole, which contains some silly and embarrassing footage. You decide to create a fake Facebook page for Nicole that contains some of the footage, and you invite the whole school to be her friend. The video of Nicole dancing becomes a school-wide joke, and people start to add visual and sound effects that make Nicole look even funnier. Before long, the video begins to spread around the Internet and Nicole receives hundreds of harassing messages.”
