Personal Safety Internet Safety This lesson corresponds to the Personal Safety: Internet Safety PowerPoint. The lesson consists of seven slides that detail safe internet and social media practices. It details five rules of social networking and what you need to assume. It also shows four internet pages that detail “what not to do” if you have a social networking page, how a predator can locate you based upon information you share online and what consequences could be associated with posting inappropriate information. This information was gathered from personal research, a graduate level course, police interviews and web statistics. The worksheets include fill in the blank note taking as well as short answer sentences. Also included are questions students can answer while viewing the PowerPoint. These questions can be used to check for comprehension or answers can be recorded and used as assessments. Also included on the notes pages are some enrichment or thought-provoking questions that students can utilize to enhance writing practices or for class discussions. This PowerPoint and notes pages may be used in conjunction with my other Personal Safety Slideshows that encompass a whole Personal Safety Unit.
