Why is it important to teach?
The presentation starts by discussing why we should even be teaching this. Advisory is an important part of a students education but it is most
effective if teachers are on board and educated well also. Making students better people in real life is one thing, but they spend much of their
life online (average of 2+ hours per day) and so how they represent themselves and treat others in that space is also important.
This section looks at how we can set our privacy up so that only people we want to see our information can. Its about how we keep our data safe.
It also looks at and some of the things we might not think about in terms of our own privacy.
How to stay secure online
Security is all about how we keep our hardware and our private areas secure. It covers topics such as how to make a good password, and how to
protect ourselves from Malware.
Netqiuette is all about how we actually treat other people online. It details how the actions we take towards others in an online space are
not always perceived in the way that we intend them to be, and what the consequences of that action might them be.
My online self
This final section culminates the session by looking at what a poor online reputation can actually end up meaning for students. This is the
most important section because it looks at the persistence of the internet, and how a poor choice of post earlier on in life can continue
to have ramifications for students years later.
