Cool Tools for the 21st Century Classroom

What’s Hiding Behind Your Screen?

January25

digital citizenship teeOK, before you think I’ve completely lost my mind for posting an image like this on my blog, read on…

Maybe it’s my twisted sense of humor, but when a colleague of mine sent me this picture—one that was used during a recent cyber safety in-service program at her school, I initially cracked up laughing. But being the digital citizenship crusader that I am, I also immediately thought—this is a must-have resource to utilize with students. Talk about a powerful image to emphasize the dangers associated with engaging in online chats with total strangers! I mean, if this doesn’t illustrate the fact that one can never quite be sure what is creeping on the other end of that Facebook, Twitter or SnapChat conversation, then I don’t know what does.

Disclaimer: Of course, I don’t know this guy—nor do I even know where this photo originated, so my apologies for the lack of attribution. Nevertheless, I would like to thank him for sharing a brilliant idea! I also want him to know that he’s the latest bulletin board poster sensation in our computer lab! Hey, whatever it takes to help our students understand the importance of protecting themselves and their identity at all times, especially when participating in online activities.

Classroom Connection:

Add this resource to your digital citizenship and/or Internet safety toolbox. I think the rest is pretty much self-explanatory!
