Grades 4-6 are discussing the difference between online and IRL (in real life) friends for the next couple weeks. Students are faced with two questions to ask when talking to online-only friends:
Students will learn that personal and private information should not be shared without the permission of a responsible adult. Students will learn the dangers of meeting online-only friends in real life. In addition, students will be given talking points for responding to questions that deal with personal and private questions online friends may ask.
My goal is to equip and empower students to know how to respond to questions from online-only friends to keep them safe in the digital world.
