									Personal Safety

     Level 6
  Hey Everybody!
          My name is Tek.
I’m going to be your guide today!
I’m a part of i-SAFE America, and
we are concerned with helping you
to be safe online.

We want you to recognize and
avoid dangerous, destructive or
unlawful online behavior, and we
hope to empower you to
communicate what you learn from i-
SAFE with others.
All right – Let’s talk
        Remember -
         Empowerment means
         you own what you learn
         and can use it to teach
         others and make a
i-SAFE includes an empowerment activity in
every lesson. By completing the activity you

So not only are you learning and
sharing, you are getting rewarded for
doing so!

   Empowerment is the Key to Learning!
             The Plan
For this lesson you will be
learning about Personal Safety
online. Your activity today will be
designing brochures to educate
others on the topic! There is also
a review game on Internet safety
if you have time.
         Ok – Article Time
Your teacher is going to read an article to
 you. Pay close attention because
 afterwards, we’re going to discuss it!
     Time for Discussion
1. Why do students feel safe on the Internet?

2. What are some dangers on the Internet?

3. What are some good things on the Internet?

4. How can you stay away from the dangerous
 One-way to stay safe, is to not reveal
 any information about oneself online
 Never tell anyone:
           Your name
           Phone number
           Family Names
           Never give a stranger your picture

These are all considered to be identifying or personal information.
  In this lesson we’re going to discuss
           how to be safe online!

Follow along on the corresponding activity
 pages, and give examples of experiences
 you’ve had with online safety issues.
The Internet is not anonymous. When you sign on,
others have access to you. Your e-mail address,
screen name, and password serve as barriers
between you and others. You need to maintain this
barrier by not giving out private information. There
are many out there who would like to know more for
various reasons:
         They could want to harm you.
         They could want money
         They could use information to conduct their
         own business - either selling your info or using
         it in an illegal manner.
       Private Information:

This information should not be given out
 on the Internet to maintain your safety.

 Name                      Address
 School                    Friends’ names
 Family names              Age
 Social Security Number    Phone number
       Indirect Information
Sometimes, while online, people want to find
  out more about you for illegal purposes.
  However, they go about it in different ways.
  They may trick you into giving out information.
  You may not even realize what you have told
  them. Indirect information about your school,
  activities, etc, could lead them to knowing
  where you live. Be aware of what you say at
  all times.
          User Id/Screen name
A User Id is a “nickname” you select to identify you in
                    e-mail, chats, etc.

   • DO NOT USE Personal Information such as:
       -Your real first name
       -Your real last name
       -Your location (i.e. hilliegirl, HaverhillGuy)
       -Your zip code
       -A suggestive name or word (i.e. sexyman42, hotbabygirl)
       -Pornographic or obscene words

  • For added security, always opt NOT to add your
    name or nickname to any sort of member
A Password is a series of letters, numbers or
  symbols used to log you into a computer system.
  Passwords are used to access email, join
  chatrooms, etc. They are usually between 6 and 8
  characters long.
Password Security:
     Don’t tell anyone your password.
     Don't write your password down anywhere.
     When you decide on a password, make sure it can't
     be guessed.
     If you think there's even a chance someone else
     might know your password, change it.
     Make sure no one is standing near you when you
     enter your password
      Watch out for…
    Dangers On the Web
Inappropriate sites - There are some sites
  you should not go to. They can be
  pornographic, hate filled, or upsetting.
  When you accidentally come across a
  site you know you shouldn’t be in, close
  out of it quickly. If you still have trouble,
  try logging off completely or rebooting.
    Watch out for…
  Dangers On the Web
Faulty information sites - Don’t trust
everything you read without double-
checking and checking references.
   Watch out for…
 Dangers On the Web
Private Information – Some websites
ask you for private information before
you can access their stuff. Make sure
you ask your parents before giving
anyone private information.
     Watch out for…
   Dangers On the Web
Your own website – Many teens now have
 their own websites. However, you have
 to be careful about what information you
            Watch out for…
           Dangers in E-mail
1. E-mail is an online form of communication, typically
   between two people. Just like in regular mail, users write
   letters and send them electronically.

1. Spamming – many companies advertise via e-mail. They
   try to entice you to purchase items, visit inappropriate
   sites, etc. Delete these e-mails.

2. Be careful when you reply to an e-mail. You are including
   your e-mail address and you don’t know where it will go
   from there.
           Watch out for…
          Dangers in Email

4. Inappropriate, offensive, angry e-mail should be
   reported to your Internet provider.

5. Remember - the sender of an e-mail may not be
   someone you know – don’t send personal
   information, photographs, etc.
      Watch out for…
    Dangers in Chatting
Chats can result in revealing information
 you wouldn’t normally reveal. This can
 leave you open to online predators.
Here are Some Tips to Remember when Chatting
1.   Keep online interaction online. Don’t agree to meet or phone
     people met online.
2.   Don’t give out personal information. Be careful about indirectly
     saying too much – like school mascot, game times, etc.
     Eventually you will have said enough.
3.   Keep your parents or guardians informed of online interaction.
4.   Use Chat rooms that are moderated.
5.   Be suspicious of someone who wants to be your friend and
     turns you against your parents, teachers or friends.
6.   Private chats aren’t always private – when you meet offline
     friends online in a private chat room be careful. Others can
     often enter and lurk.
7.   Try to choose a gender-neutral online screen name
        Watch out for…
     Dangers in Newsgroups,
      Forums, and Bulletin
1. The biggest thing to remember is to NOT include
   personal information in postings. Don’t reveal
   anything identifying about yourself.

2. Realize that by posting, you are making your e-
   mail address public.

3. Be careful not to participate in a group, which
   might be illegal or hateful.
      Resources for reporting
  Here is a general guideline for reporting Internet

1. Call the local police and ask if they have a dept.
   affiliated with "Internet Crimes Against Children
   (ICAC). If they do, go through that dept.
2. Simultaneously, file a report with the Cybertips
   hotline: 1-800-843-5678. Reports can be made
   directly online by clicking on the Cybertipline at
The following are guidelines on proactive
 things you can do when you are
 bothered, harassed, or annoyed while

Use these tips to make your online
 experience one that is more fun and
 safe too!
       Junk E-mail/Spam:
Delete without opening. Report to your
 Internet provider. Do not click
 unsubscribe as this identifies you as a
 real person.
         Cyber stalking:

Report this to the local police department
 and to your local provider, who can help
 you change your online ids to protect
           Child Luring:

If you feel you are in danger or someone
   you know is in danger of becoming a
   victim of a predator, notify a trusted
   adult immediately. Call your local police
