Does anyone have a good resource for teaching middle schoolers Internet Safety? I was hoping for short videos approrpriate for grades 5-8. THANKS!
Common Sense Education has some great digital citizenship lessons that I plan on using for our school this year. They're 55 minutes lessons that can be cut down to 15 minutes if needed.
I totally agree with Common Sense Media that someone else recommended. Another good resource for videos & lessons is NetSmartz, made possible by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. They have resources available for all levels (elementary, middle, & high school). Also, Google's Applied Digital Skills embeds some digital citizenship skills within their lessons, and it usually mimics a real-life application kind of situation, so it's meaningful to students.
In addition to Common Sense Education, I also really like the Above the Noise videos. https://www.pbs.org/show/above-noise/ You have to filter through the videos to see which ones tie in but my students really enjoy them.
EdPuzzle also has some for elementary and middle. EdPuzzle
I highly second Michelle's recommendation for Above the Noise and was coming here to suggest it! If you go through their PBS collection, you will find a number of accompanying resources for each video. A second favorite for me is the Crash Course series on YouTube. They have some amazing content.
Oh! And my organization is hosting a Digital Literacy conference with an online component on September 15th :) Anyone is welcome.
Here's a link to the Slide Deck of digital citizenship lesson ideas we give to our teachers in Upland:
UUSD Digital Citizenship Lessons
It's for all grades, but you can grab resources from those grade levels. It contains many of the resources already mentioned here, but we wanted them in an "easy to find" format for our teachers.
I am going to add the "Above the Noise" videos that Michelle, Nicole, and others mentioned. I did not know about those--so thanks for that share!
We are in our second year of using Neptune Navigate and are really liking it. There are many features to like about it including setup/rostering students, built-in gradebook and reports for verification of completion, and all accessible online. We have our teachers work through the module contents, mark them complete for all students (a couple minute process), and then have the students log in and take the quiz. We roster ours from our Infinite Campus database and then vet it via Clever for students.
