2017-2018 Digital Citizenship: Grade 5

Teaching and learning guide for 2015-2016

Big Idea

What's Cyberbullying?

What is cyberbullying, and how do you deal with it?

Students discuss positive and negative aspects of interacting with others online. Students learn the definition of cyberbullying and help the teacher fill in a Venn diagram that compares in-person bullying with cyberbullying. They then read a story of a student who is cyberbullied, identifying the players involved and how the target might feel.

 

Cyberbullying: Be Upstanding

How do you judge the intentions and impact of people's words and actions online?

Students learn about the difference between being a passive bystander versus a brave upstander in cyberbullying situations. Students reflect on what it means to be brave and to stand up for others. They then identify concrete solutions for dealing with cyberbullying situations.

Digital Citizenship Pledge

How do you create a positive online community?

Students will establish group norms to create a positive online community that promotes responsible and respectful digital behavior within their classroom. Students collaborate in creating a digital citizenship pledge outlining their collective social norms for exploring in and interacting with the digital world.
