Kia ora,

Sharing a question that came through on the Wire from Annemarie Hyde - can you help:
"I want your best ideas for talking about Facebook to intermediate age students!"

Can you help? Put your answer in this thread, as well as any other questions you have about Digital citizenship and Facebook with students.

    Not specifically about Facebook, more digital citizenship as a larger concept. We ask our year 8 students to create an online presentation to show to our year 7s, creating an authentic scenario for year 8 students to identify and present the key concepts. I provide the resources from which they find the answers to their self-developed questions. 50% of the videos are stories from young teens who are victims of cyberbullying and predators. Students show a high level of interest in working out the message from the stories. During this unit I've been frightened by the lack of safety awareness shown by intermediate students.
