Digital Citizenship for Teenagers
My topic on the wiki was Privacy-Global Awareness. It talked about privacy on the internet. I talked about different common web sites. There is Facebook, Tweeter, and Instagram. All teens now days have at least one of these web sites. All these web sites have privacy where people you don't know can't access your page and find out information about you. There are people out there that try to get information about you like where you live, your phone number, or find out the place you are at right now. It is a little scary how if you don't have one little thing set for privacy someone could find you and stalk or kill you.
My topic for the Action Project is Be Real Honest. We have a Twitter and a Tumblr. We blog on both web sites to tell about being honest and how to show honesty. We made a logo and a video about showing our whole class say be real and our little groups saying the name of the group. We have told other schools about are Be Real group and what we learned about it. I have learned in my group to be honest to others and more people will trust you. We have four groups a honest, nice, mature, and genuine group. We all do different things in our groups. Some of us are going to make a video about how to be honest, mature, nice, or genuine.
Yes, because kids should know about it. The kids should be mature enough to know what they are talking about and why they should know about it. If the kids know about digital citizenship they could be better on the web in the real world. The most important thing I learned about in this project was that privacy is a thing everyone needs on the web. If they don't have it someone could get hurt or maybe have problems in life and others could be in a bad spot. Kids need to learn that there are people out there that look for little kids and they need to know what to post and how to post it.
