E-book, Lesson Plan


This is the first in the Nortel LearniT Cybersafety Lesson Series on Cybersafety, and the summary page for the series. The basis of this lesson is exploring a broad range of guidelines on Internet safety (such as safeguarding your identity, "talking to strangers", passwords, etc.). Other modules in this series focus on: • Cybersafety: Viruses, Popups, and Spam and Oh My - computer viruses and popups, spam, and more, including hoaxes, scams/fraud, identity theft, and cookies • Cybersafety: Cyberbullies - online bullying via e-mail, video, instant messaging • Cybersafety: The Dark Side of the Net - Internet dangers of online predators and pornography • Cybersafety: Web of Deceit - how to examine Web sites to research and analyze the effectiveness of information stored on a Web page. Students will create their own Web pages to demonstrate how they apply their new media literacy skills. In this lesson, students are required to research what being cybersafe means and produce a three–fold poster or a PowerPoint Slide Show for a Cybersafety Fair (like a trade show or information expo). Each group will have a table at the show and will display their information on either the poster or where there is sufficient equipment and power, using PowerPoint. Students should also prepare a single page handout or brochure with a summary of their information.
