"E-safety example lesson plans"
Southwark Primary School ICT (Year 1-6) Autumn - E-safety Throughout this term the children will be learning how to do various basic skills such as using the Internet to search and find information, sending and receiving emails and using their class blog. Throughout all of it there are explicit and implicit safety issues that must be discussed. The children should all be made aware of the dangers of the internet and know what to do if they see something that they do not like. Year 1 Objective Activity Children understand that they can find a range of information on the At the beginning of this lesson the children need to be introduced to the way internet that their work will be stored this year. They need to be shown how to access their folder and how to save into it. All work that is currently in it should be archived. They will have a new folder for all their current topic work and either show them how to make a new folder for the next topic or you will need to do this for them. Show the children a variety of websites that are appropriate to the topic that they are looking at (for example http://www.vam.ac.uk/school_stdnts/index.html) or use http://news.bbc.co.uk/cbbcnews or www.firstnews.co.uk. Go through one as a class and show them how they can find information on a website. It might be pictures or facts. Challenge the children to use a website and find out 3 new facts about their topic. AA children to fill in fact file with 3 facts illustrated with pictures. A children to fill in fact file with 2 facts drawn with captions. BA children may need to work in small groups with an adult reading the website to them will in 1 picture with caption. Children are able to navigate age-appropriate websites Children need to have the experience of using and navigating a website this could be related to the topic they are looking at. Whilst looking at the website Children should be shown the distinct features such as text, pictures and links. They are going to be using all these features of websites. Children to explore a website and point out to a friend every time they see them. Who can find the most pictures? Who can find the most links? Explain to the children new ‘posh’ terms such as ‘hyperlinks’ ‘search engine’ ‘toolbar’ and ‘web address’. Can the children have a go at each of these – clicking a hyperlink, searching in a search engine, adding a web address into the toolbar. Challenge the children to design a poster to tell other children what they mean! (AA could use the computer to make this poster using publisher) Children to evaluate websites by giving opinions about preferred or most useful sites. Show the children the same sites as last time and explain that this time they are going to not just look at them to find information but decide which their favourite is. Explain that it is just like we do book reviews of our favourite books but with websites! They are going to have a go at a ‘website review’. Come up with a variety of things as a checklist for them to see. For example they might want to think about if the colours make the website fun to look at. Is the writing a good font and big enough to read? Is there much useful, easy to read information? Children to explore each website comparing to the criteria. When they have chosen their favourite one. Write/design a website review explaining why Children know what to do if they find something inappropriate online Use Dongle activity to introduce the children to SMART rules and the KS1 pupil acceptable use policy. Teach children that sometimes things appear on the internet that they know they should not look at. If this happens teach them to minimise window straight away and alert an adult. http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/help/web/staysafe Children understand that the internet can be used to communicate with Explain to the children that over the next 2 lessons they will be able to find out other people about communicating in 2 different ways- through email and through a blog (show them their blank blog). Today they will be looking at how to write an email using the 2Simple software, 2email, or a suitable alternative. Overview on how to use here Children need to learn the differences between a letter and an email. Discuss when they would send a letter: what would the advantages of an email. Look at the features, so rather than when writing a letter you don’t put the address on an envelope you put the recipient email address. Consider the other features such as needing a subject and the main bit is called a message. Children to type in simple email account of another year 1 class and send their message. AA children type their message independently illustrating with a picture, A children type a short message with a picture drawn for the main message. BA Children to draw their message adding a caption in the message section. This time the children will be introduced to their class/year blog! Explain what a blog is- a website that they can update about all the exciting things that they have been doing and that people all over the world can say how amazing they are! Show the children an example of other year 1/2 blogs so they can get some ideas. Examples here What would they like on their blog? Children to brainstorm and teacher to record. Year 2 Objective Activity Children use the internet purposefully to answer specific questions At the beginning of this lesson the children need to be introduced to the way that their work will be stored this year. They need to be shown how to access their Children practise e-safety when communicating online folder and how to save into it. All work that is currently in it should be archived. Show the children how to make a new folder and move all current content into it. They will then need to make a new folder for all their current topic work. This lesson is an introduction to the internet and the children will be introduced to many new terms such as ‘search engine’ ‘web address’ ‘browser’ ‘hyperlinks’ and ‘pop-ups’. Explain to the children what each means by demonstrating it on the IWB. Children need to make sure that during the lesson they have a go at typing a website address in and navigating the page. The next term they need is bookmarking. Explain that sometimes they might want to store useful websites on the computer like they store work and an easy way of doing this is by bookmarking. All children to have a go. Can they search their topic using google and bookmark some good websites? Just onto the computer. Stop the children when any find a really good one and then all can save. AA: Extend to using a web based bookmarking site called www.Delicious.com they will have their own year groups delicious account eg. www.delicious.com/year2 They need to sign in they then need to copy the website address click add a bookmark and copy it in. Discuss the need for a common tag so everyone is using the same thing- this could be their class name and the topic eg.history A: Children to bookmark only those websites that are suitable and most appropriate. BA: Children to look at a website and bookmark with support. Children to explore a selection of web sites to find out information about a class topic use the bookmarks they made last lesson. Provide children with a variety of challenges for them to complete whilst on the internet. This could be done on a rotational basis alongside books where the children can then compare how easy it was to get information from different sources. Children know that not everything on the internet is true Show the children the spoof website Red Tomato Spider or Moon is made of cheese Explain that you are quite excited about it because you would never have Children practise e-safety when communicating online believed it was true unless it was on the internet! Children to have a look at the website in more detail jotting down anything that surprises them! Bring the children back together and explain that actually it is a made up website! Anyone can put things up and therefore it is vital they think about if they think about whether something is likely to be true before they believe it. Explain that sometimes people are not who they say they are on the internet and if anyone asks for personal details it is important that they do not give them out. They could create an alias or online nickname instead. Children to create now- give them a business size piece of card to write it on and decorate to make it look special! Show the children the website that you have set up for them! It is called a blog. Over the whole year they are going to be putting things up about what they will be doing this year in all subjects. Show them Miss Jones old one http://2cj.creativeblogs.net and all the things they can put on it! Children are able to send suitable and purposeful emails Explain to the children that a year 2 teacher who lives in Reading (in the south of England) has seen their blog and wanted to get in touch with them. They wanted to send a message from their class to yours. It was too long for a blog comment. Children practise e-safety when communicating online And they wanted to send it straight away not wait around for the postman to bring a letter. They could phone but the teachers are always missing each other when they ring. Mrs Bussell suggested the send an email. But what’s is an email? Children to discuss! Show the children how to send an email using 2email Remind them about: Writing the email address in the top. Writing a subject so that the people know what it is about. (Explain that if an email does not have a subject they should check who it is from before they open it) The children could have a list of subjects for them to sort into junk or read. Children to type a message to another class and send it! Children know the difference between communicating via email and online Today the children will be looking at yet another way of communicating online. in a discussion forum Rather than email lots of people which is sometimes useful they are going to communicate via a forum. When in school might they want a forum? For all the Children practise e-safety when communicating online children in the school to discuss something. Explain that as a class we are going to create a forum. They we are all going to write a message in the forum and invite all the other classes to participate as well. Class to choose the forum topic and set it up on the blog or VLE. Demonstrate how to make a post on it. Children to go and do the same. Remind the children that whilst our forum is safe sometimes forums on the internet might not be so they need to be careful. Remind the children of their alias. Children begin to publish information on the blog for others to view Show the children the blog again do they remember what it was going to be used for? That’s right showing people all over the world what they have been up to. Children practise e-safety when communicating online Allow the children to look at http://delicious.com/2CJ/blogs+ks1 with lots of good blogs for the children to explore and see. What makes a good blog? What do they want to have on theirs? Now is the time to tell us. Write a very simple post with the children. They then need to go onto their own blog (from the school website) and post a comment about the blog. Home work challenge- can you show your parents the blog? Can they write a comment to say what they think about it! Year 3 Objective Activity Children use the Internet to undertake independent purposeful research, At the beginning of this lesson the children need to be introduced to the way that gathering appropriate text and image and attempt to distinguish between their work will be stored this year. They need to be shown how to access their fact and fiction folder and how to save into it. All work that is currently in it will need to be archived. Show the children how to make a new folder and move all current content into it. They will then need to make a new folder for all their current topic work. Children to use the internet to search on their topic. Most websites are great and really helpful but sometimes we come across websites that have things that are not suitable for children. Go through the www.disney.co.uk/DisneyOnline/Safesurfing/index.shtml to show what you should do if you see something you don’t like and create a list of rules for using the internet. Explain that there is a variety of search engines out there and today they are going to find which the best one for their topic might be. What search engine do they use most of the time? Google? Get the children to have a look at some others www.kidsclick.org www.kids.yahoo.com www.askforkids.com Try searching for different words and see what a difference the results are. Can they find some superb websites that they would like everyone to see? Explain that it is easy to allow everyone to see them by ‘bookmarking’. This means that you save the website. This can be done on one computer or on the internet using a site called delicious. Demonstrate how to use delicious and save onto the class delicious site. Demonstrate how to log in, they need to find the website they want. Right click in the toolbar and Copy the address and then go to ‘add a new bookmark’ in delicious and right click paste. Talk about what words would be good to ‘tag’ it with. All needs to be the same so maybe ‘history’. A short description to tell other people about it. Write the word delicious on the board- what did they do using delicious last lesson- explain to a partner how they did it and see if they can log in again. Today the children are going to use the websites they saved to their delicious account to create a fact book all about the topic. Show the children one you have made that is just bits of text copied from websites- make sure some is from wikipedia (some wrong facts) some doesn’t make sense and it is all different fonts and sizes! Do they think it is good? No! It is important when they create their booklets they take the facts from the website but don’t just copy and paste because a) That is stealing someone’s work b) It might not be true c) It doesn’t tell us what YOU have learnt. Children can begin to use a range of online communication tools eg. Forums, Today the children are going to use the internet for something different. polls and email to exchange and develop ideas with other learners and Sometimes you use the internet to find information but sometimes you might experts in a range of curriculum contexts want to use it to communicate with different people from all over the world. Over the next few lessons the children are going to have the chance to do with with a variety of different tools. First up today is email. Do any of the children know what email is? Explain to the children that it is a bit like sending an letter but it is sent over the internet and is received straight away. Why might you want to use an email instead of writing or calling or texting? Explain to the children that today they will be sending one of the other year 3 classes an email. They are going to send them their topic booklets that they made over the last few lessons. Show the children how to write an email using 2email software. (Video of overview of the software here) They need to open the software up and click send 2email. Put the other class’ email address in the ‘To’ box and think of a suitable subject. Explain that unless you know who an email is from you must not open it. Children to discuss why this might be. Children to write a short message to say hello and a short message. Click Send. AA: Children to write an email adding their favourite website from previous lessons. Annotate with a picture A: Children to write an email and draw a relevant picture BA: Children to write a short email and draw a picture. Today we are going to use the internet to communicate but not by email! Children to guess what the method of communication might be! How else can the internet be used to communicate with other people? (this is a good point to gauge children’s knowledge of the internet and could lead to interesting discussion of using it safely- make the most of opportunities like this!) Sometimes people want to ask questions or polls to find out what other people think about things. If you just wanted to ask a few people it would be easy just to ask them. But what if you wanted to ask lots of people from all over the world? If you put a poll on a website or a blog then everyone can do it and we can get the results straight away. What could we create a poll about? Think, pair and share ideas. (this links well into maths so could be one they have done data handling on). Show the children how to write a poll and post it to the blog. (There is a video guide to show you how to do this). Let the children have a go at logging on and voting on the poll. Discuss with the children that sometimes you might want to find out what people think but not just give a few options-you want them to be able to write lots. For this we use a forum. Demonstrate how to create a forum about one of the previous ideas! Demonstrate how you write on the forum and leave your view- children to log onto the blog and have a go. Children are able to publish their work to a wider audience using the blog. Show the children their class blog and ask them to think about everything they know about it already! What is it for? Why do they have it? What is on it so far? Jot down all the ideas on a big piece of paper and explain that you are going to use all these ideas this year and might want to add more as they find out more about what their blog can do. Have a look at the cluster map on the blog and explain that it is a map of the world showing how many people have looked at the blog and where they have come from! Today they are going to have a good look at lots of other peoples blogs to try and get some good ideas for theirs. They are going to look for things they like and would like to have on their blogs. This can be anything from pictures, videos, podcasts, web links etc. Use www.delicious.com/2cj/blogs+ks2 Children to work in pairs to write a list of everything they would like! They could leave a comment on other peoples blogs to tell the other children how much they liked it! Remind the children that just as they have been able to view all this whatever they put on their blog other people will also look at! Now that we know all the things we would like to put on the blog we better start learning how to do it! Explain to the children that the teachers are also learning how to do this so they might not have all the answers! Our first challenge is to write a post. Children need to learn how to log in to their blog. Then they need to go to new post. They need to type in what they want it to say- make sure it has a subject and their name at the bottom then click post! Have a look at the blog now- doesn’t it look great with so many posts on?! Make sure the children put their name on! Year 4 Objective Activity Children understand how they can use the internet safely for research and At the beginning of this lesson the children need to be introduced to the way that by following lines of enquiry. their work will be stored this year. They need to be shown how to access their folder and how to save into it. All work that is currently in it will need to be archived. Show the children how to make a new folder and move all current content into it. They will then need to make a new folder for all their current topic work. Before the children go online explain to them that there are some really key facts that they need to know about the internet in order to keep them safe. Allow them to explore www.thinkuknow.co.uk/8_10 in the cyber cafe to find out all about it! Get the children to create and sign an agreement of how to use the internet with simple rules such as- if they see something that they know they should not look at then to minimise it or turn off the monitor and ask a teacher to come. Once they have signed the agreement explain that over the next few lessons you have a challenge for them to use the internet to do some research all about their history topic! If they want to do some research at home using the internet they are more than welcome to. Children know that not everything on the internet is true and know what to Explain to the children that you were on the internet the other day and you found do if they access something inappropriate this amazing website. Would they like to see it? www.allaboutexplorers.com you thought they could use it to find lots of information all about explorers! Set each challenge on the treasure hunt to research an explorer. But there will be a problem- the websites contradict each other!!! Go onto the website www.wikipedia.com explain that this year they will be creating their very own wiki pages. That means that although they create them anyone can log in and change what it says. Wikipedia is like a big encyclopaedia that anyone can change. Should you believe everything you read on it? Children could debate pros and cons. Show the children their class blog. Explain that it is a website that they will be creating over the whole year and the only way things will go up there is if they create and write them! Other people will trust them to write facts! Children understand the function of a search engine and the importance of See if the children can remember what you said they would be doing this week? using the correct search criteria. Yes search engines for research about their history topic. Today they are going to look at 2 different search engines and compare them. The class is going to be split into two with one group using www.google.com and the second using www.ask.co.uk If they wanted to find out about their history topic what could they put in? Did they find what they expected? What could they change it to if they wanted something more specific? Demonstrate how writing long extended questions is a lot less useful than thinking about key words. For example using the words ‘and’ or ‘a’ will just be ignored. What if they only wanted pictures? The images button could help then! Remind the children to be careful because sometimes we get images of things we didn’t expect. What about sound clips? Have to search for them. Get each group to present to the class why their search engine is the best and why using the IWB to demonstrate. Have a class vote! Which one is best? They could write a post on their blog about what they found out. Children use the internet as a resource to support their work and begin to Explain to the children that they are going to be using their preferred search understand plagiarism. engine again to find some information. They are going to make a fact file page all about their topic. Children use web pages effectively to find information. Can they find some superb websites that they would like everyone to see? Explain that it is easy to allow everyone to see them by ‘bookmarking’. This means that you save the website. This can be done on one computer or on the internet using a site called delicious. Demonstrate how to log in. They need to find the website they want. Right click in the toolbar and Copy the address and then go to ‘add a new bookmark’ in delicious and then right click paste. Talk about what words would be good to ‘tag’ it with. All needs to be the same so maybe ‘history’. A short description is also needed to tell other people what the website it about. Once the children have found some good websites full of information that they can take some information from them but explain to them that it is important not to steal other peoples work. They must not just copy huge amounts of text. Emphasise the need to read and understand and write up in their own words. Explain that whilst google images is great and has lots of pictures a lot of the images people haven’t given permission for their pictures to be there. Instead they could use the website www.compfight.com for images. All the pictures there are fine to use! Have a go at searching for an image. Click on the image and it will load nice and big. Children right click, copy and paste the image into word file where they have been writing their fact file. Children use a range of online communication tools to exchange information Now that they have created their amazing fact files it is great that they are saved and collaborate with others within and beyond their school eg. Blog, email, on the server so that everyone at Southwark can look at them but wouldn’t it be social networking and online gaming. amazing if we could let other people all over the world read them! Explain to the children that our challenge over the next 2 weeks is to do just that! First we are going to learn how to send them as an attachment in an email in case we just want to send it to one or two specific people. Then next week they will learn how to put it on the blog. Ask the children if any of them have every used email before and if so how and why? Children who have to explain. If none have then explain to the children that it is just like sending a letter except it is all done on the internet. Today they are going to send an email to the other year 4 classes showing them their amazing work that they have been doing. Children to use the website www.gagglenet.com and have a look at what all the boxes mean. The to: box needs to have the email address it is being sent to. The subject box needs to tell the reader what it is about (explain to children if they ever receive email and they don’t know who it is from or what the subject is they should not read it) Then write a message saying what you have attached and who it is from. Then show the children how to attach a file. When they have finished it then press send. Children publish their work to a chosen audience using appropriate online Today they are going to have a good look at lots of other peoples blogs to try and tools such as blogging. get some good ideas for theirs. They are going to look for things they like and would like to have on their blogs. This can be anything from pictures, videos, podcasts, web links etc. A wide variety can be found here Children to work in pairs to write a list of everything they would like. Now that we know all the things we would like to put on the blog we better start learning how to! Explain to the children that the teachers are also learning how to do this so they might not have all the answers! Our first challenge is to write a post. Children need to learn how to log in to their blog. Then they need to go to ‘New post’. They need to type in a subject header and then what they want it to say. Maybe a fact about their history topic including a website. Remind the children not to forget to add their name at the bottom then click post! Have a look at the blog now- doesn’t it look great with so many posts on! Year 5 Objective Activity Children use the internet as a resource to support their work At the beginning of this lesson the children need to be introduced to the way that their work will be stored this year. They need to be shown how to access their Children recognise the need to ask appropriate questions to find answers folder and how to save into it. All work that is currently in it will need to be archived. Show the children how to make a new folder and move all current content into it. They will then need to make a new folder for all their current topic work. Explain to the children that before they go online you need to remind them of the work that they have done in previous years to make sure they stay safe online. They need to sign an agreed set of rules for using the internet. Get the children to discuss what these rules are likely to be. Record and all children to sign. (if the children show a lack of understanding use the www.thinkuknow.com/8_10 site to go through all the aspects of e-safety) Explain to the children that over the next few weeks they will be researching about their history topic. How could they use the internet to find information? Hopefully they will say using a search engine and be able to give a few examples. Ask the children to find a range of useful websites and bookmark them to the class delicious account. Demonstrate how to log in, they need to find the website they want. Right click in the toolbar and Copy the address and then go to ‘add a new bookmark’ in delicious and right click paste. Talk about what words would be good to ‘tag’ it with. All needs to be the same so maybe ‘history’. A short description to tell other people about it. Some children may need this demonstrating. Consider what would be good tags. Why are some people finding better websites than others? Because of the KEY WORDS they enter. Test demonstrating to all the difference between a long vague search and a good clear specific search. Children understand that good online research involves processing the Explain to the children that today is the first day of creating their fact files which is information (rather than copying) and interpreting it for others. going to take a couple of lessons to complete. They are going to use a variety of websites that they saved last lesson and any new ones that they can find they can Children recognise issues of copyright and the importance of acknowledging bookmark as well. In order for the piece of work to be the best that it can be they sources need to make sure that it fulfils 3 criteria 1) That there is information taken from many sources 2) That they have not just copied large pieces of text from websites 3) That they have acknowledged where they found their information. Ask the children to discuss why each of these would be important? If all the information is from the same place then what if it isn’t correct? If they haven’t written it themselves how do they know it makes sense? Can they imagine if they put their work online and someone came along, stole all their ideas and claimed that they had made it how would they feel? Explain this is particularly important for images/photos. Show the children the website www.compfight.com where they can get photos legally. Children to start getting their information ready for their fact file. Children can choose what software to use to present it in. Children recognise that not all information on the internet is accurate or Children to look through the start of the fact files they were making last time. unbiased (advertising) and develop strategies for identifying the origin of a Have they made sure they have followed the 3 rules. Each pair to work with a website critical friend pair to check and identify if they have. Explain that whilst they are continuing their internet search to make their fact files it is important that the children consider if the information is accurate and unbiased. Discuss the meaning of these words. If they are researching about computers and they look on the apple website will it show them both the positives and the negatives? Make sure their fact file does! Most of this lesson gives the children time to finish their fact files. Children understand the potential risks of providing personal information in Explain to the children that you have received several emails recently but you an increasing range of online technologies both within and outside school don’t know who any of them are from and they link you to what looks like a really exciting website. However in order to sign up they are all asking for really Children recognise their own right to be protected from the inappropriate personal details like your name, age, address and phone number. You don’t know technology by others and the need to respect the rights of other users what to do can they help? Get the children to discuss/debate the pros and cons of giving personal details – are there any alternatives? For example if they left it blank would it still let you sign in? If there parents let them go on it and having seen it decide it is safe is it fair to pressure their friends to also sign up? Can the children think of any other situations that they have been in when they have been unsure of what to do- have they bebo or club penguin accounts where other people might have contacted them? What did they do? Children to be finishing their fact files this lesson. Make sure that they have the change to look through each others. Explain that the focus is on making sure that they have credited the author or source of their information. Children use online tools to exchange information and collaborate with Explain to the children that they are going to share their fact files with people others within and beyond their school and begin to evaluate their online. They are going to post their work to the blog . Show them their blank effectiveness blogs. Explain what a blog is and allow them to briefly browse some other KS2 blogs here Show the children how to do this by signing in, writing a new post and attaching the file. (AA could use the web tool www.embedit.in) This then enables anyone in the world to look at it. They need to consider what they are going to write in the post so as to get the lots of positive comments/ feedback. Once they have written the text they could change the formatting appearance such as font, colour, sizing and layout of the post. Children then to look at other students work and comment both in their class and in other classes! Children evaluate their own use of web publishing tools and how they Children to review all the ways they use the internet. Has it changed over the last present themselves online half term? Has their attitude been changed at all? Class to make a list of all the ways they use the internet at school and at home. What can they do to make sure they stay safe? Children to create a quiz that could be used with next years year 4/5 to assess how safe they are at using the internet! Obviously children need to write the answers as well! This should be recorded on the computer so that it looks professional. They could use www.photopeach.com using the quiz feature. They upload images and write a question with various possible answers. These can them be embedded onto the blog. Year 6 Objective Activity Children select appropriate tools to collaborate and communicate At the beginning of this lesson the children need to be introduced to the way that confidently and safely with others within an beyond their school their work will be stored this year. They need to be shown how to access their folder and how to save into it. All work that is currently in it will need to be archived. Show the children how to make a new folder and move all current content into it. They will then need to make a new folder for all their current topic work. Children to explore the SORTED website (http://www.childnet-int.org/sorted/) to start discuss with the children the safe use of the internet. Children to create their own class charter of rules for using the internet including social networking, blogs and email. If they are not familiar with any of these terms discuss in detail focusing on staying safe. This would be a good time to show them their class blog Children should be able to explain what things are safe to do online and what things they should avoid. If they have not already children should create an alias for use online this should be a nickname that can not be traced back to them nor contain any personal information. Get the children discussing how they use the internet currently. Explain that over the course of the year they will be using a variety of tools and one of the crucial ones will be email. Talk the children through how to use gagglenet to send and receive emails. Children have three challenges: 1. They should be able to explain how to add an attachment. 2. How would they send emails to many different people? 3. Children should know when an email is safe to open or not. Children confidently and efficiently use the internet as a tool for research Children should be confident at using the internet as a source of information. Set and critically evaluate websites the children a big over riding challenge relating to the whole of their history topic. Explain to them that they are going to be keeping their own online journal of what they find out. This is called a glog. Show them how to log into their own glog using www.glogster.com/edu and explain that this is going to be a space where they can update as they wish. Discuss how it doesn’t just have to be in ICT lessons they can do it anytime they are online. Today their challenge is to use the internet as a tool to find out about their current topic. They are going to need to post links to at least 3 websites to their glog and critically evaluate them. They can then go on a friends glog and see what they think? Who has found the best website about their topic? Children recognise that not all information on the internet is accurate or Split the children into 4 groups and give each group a different hoax website. unbiased (advertising) and develop a range of strategies for identifying the Some examples are: origin of a website GBall www.google.com.au/intl/en/gball Dog island www.thedogisland.com Stop alien abductions http://stopabductions.com Save the mountain walrus http://mountainwalrus.webs.com Add in a real but hard to believe one such as if you want to trick them! (BBc Also in the news has a good section) Get the children to read the information and record anything that surprises them about what they read. Review back to the class what they have found out. Explain to the children that actually you have tricked them only 1 of the websites was actually genuine! Can they work out which it was? The point of the exercise was that anyone can put things on the internet- just like they did with their glogs/class blogs the previous lesson. Children understand the issues of plagiarism, copyright and data protection Introduce the term copyright to the children. What do they understand it to in relation to their work. mean? Show the advert for copyrighting DVDs that is at the beginning of every DVD for a ‘every day’ use of the term. Explain to the children that it is the same They understand that the resources they find may be covered by copyright. for information and pictures on the internet. Someone else has taken the time They understand that not all information on the internet is legal to use or and effort to write it and upload it. Children to discuss therefore why it is wrong copy, even if sources are acknowledged for people to claim that they have written it? Look through various websites to check for copyright- should be at the bottom of most (could use BBC for reliable examples). Show the children the websites www.compfight.com explain that the children could use it as an alternative to google images. They search in the same way and when they find an image and check the copyright of it in the right hand column then they can use it in the same way. Explain that the children still need to be cautious of what they search for so that they can avoid adverts or inappropriate results. If children have had experience of downloading illegal music could discuss about what this is wrong and the implications for the music industry? Share LEGAL music download sites such as www.hmv.com or www.itunes.com Children exchange and share ideas with a wider audience, and to evaluate Review some of the websites that the children spoke about using in the first their use of technology including the use of email, social networking, online lesson and how they use them to communicate with other people. Which are gaming and mobile phones and how they present themselves online. more effective? Would they use some in different contexts? Discuss with the children why it is important to consider who they are ‘friends’ with online- only people they actually know. How they should respect other peoples privacy. Perhaps create a ‘pretend site’ with one of the childrens personal details on and photos on. How would they feel if it was them? Set the children a challenge. Over the lessons they are going to improve their glog so that it has even more information on. They will need to teach themselves how to do 2 things- eg.to get RSS feeds for delicious bookmarks, insert photos with copyright protection or videos. Teacher will need to explain the terms but give children time to explore for themselves. FOCUS: They need to change their glog from a social use to a school use. An RSS feed is when a website such as a blog or new site is updated it produced a RSS feed with just the information. If they find someone elses blog they might want to follow. They need to go to the website. Click on View RSS feed and copy that into the glog or HTML text box on the VLE site. If they use a class delicious account for useful websites this can create RSS feeds for specific tags. They should know how to insert legal photos and search for legal videos online and know how to download, save and insert into the files recording their source to acknowledge. If children were not able to insert pictures or videos or RSS feed and wish to continue this in the next lesson provide time for them to try this. If they want to be extended further then ask them to create a pod cast. Show the children examples of excellent podcasts here and see how they use them. Children could come up with some of the ways that our school website could be improved to look more like this one! Children to record their own voice recordings and upload them onto the internet. These could then be uploaded onto their glogs and the best ones emailed to Miss Jones to put onto the school website.
