    Identity theft is when someone sets up a webpage (or uses documents like passports) to pretend they are you. Sometimes on social networking sites like Facebook, people can set up a page which looks like you made it, but it says mean things about you and makes you look bad. This is a form of harassment and any kind of harassment - online or off - is not OK.

    Video from the team at You Tube about keeping safe online.  Simple video with simple practical steps for appropriate online behaviour and safety tips.  Some good discussion points for working with students.

    Firstly lets put aside for a second, the fact that this video is made with the help of money from Dove cosmetics. The arguments behind the efficacy of "real beauty" campaigns or the validity of a cosmetic giant's interest in this is for another place.

    What "Selfie" is in this context, is 7 minutes of video that explores the role social media and the self image has in the definition of beauty, and our own idea's of what we should and shouldn't look like.

    I think this is a useful video to begin a discussion around citizenship in terms of how we use it to interact with each other, and how we might begin to look at "relating to others in positive, meaningful ways" (NetSafe Digital Citizenship definitions)

    This has absolutely nothing to do with the internet. Not a thing. Except maybe that you will watch it in your browser. But what it is, is a story that really pushes home one of the fundamental messages of [Digital] Citizenship. 

    We all have a right to be ourselves, and when we see someone rights being infringed apon, we can all do something to help put an end to it. For a long time the message of bystander action around online bullying has been talked about, we all accept its importance, but here is a group of children, taking some action for themselves to change the life of someone they care about.

    Perhaps next time the subject of cyber bullying comes up in your classroom, and you are looking for a a way to focus attention around the importance of what we do when we see it happening, you can take a look at Danny's story.
