Liceul Tehnologic Octavian Goga Jibou, Romania

Teacher: Melinda Nagy

Class: 5 C

Title of the activity: My Online World

Aim of the activity: to reflect on their use of the internet and to consider the role it plays in their lives.

Resources: Internet connection, Google Meet, computer/laptop/tablet/smartphone

Activity 1:

This activity will allow students to share examples of best internet practice. It will also get students to think about the role the internet plays in their lives and to reflect on their online behaviour.

-Discussion: What is the best thing to do on the internet? Students are encouraged to share knowledge of internet sites that other people might find most useful.

-students indicate the main reason why they use the internet (e.g. to socialise, to find information, to play games, to communicate, to learn etc).

Activity 2:

This activity will allow students to reflect on their photo sharing practices.

Imagine you see a picture that you think all of your friends would really like. You decide to share the picture online or using a messaging app. After 10 minutes all of the people you shared the picture with have seen it. Write down the number of people with whom you shared the picture. Another 10 minutes pass and your friends have now shared the picture with all of their friends. To get an estimate of how many people have seen the picture after twenty minutes, multiply the first number you wrote down by itself (eg 20 x 20=400) and write down your answer.
These people in turn share the picture with their friends. To get an estimate of how many people have seen the picture after thirty minutes, multiply your last answer by the first number you wrote down (400 x 20=8000). These people in turn share the picture with their friends. To get an estimate of how many people have seen the picture after forty minutes, multiply your last answer by the first number you wrote down (8000 x 20=160000). Again these people share the picture with their friends within ten minutes. To get an estimate of how many people have seen the picture after fifty minutes, multiply your last answer by the first number you wrote down (160000 x 20=3200000).

Another ten minutes passes and these people now all share the picture with their friends. To get an estimate of how many people have seen the picture after an hour, multiply your last answer by the first number you wrote down (3200000 x 20=64000000). Next time you login online, the picture you first shared is everywhere. This is called a viral effect, because the picture has spread like a virus.

Discussion:

– Q. What did this exercise teach you about photo sharing using the internet?
– Q. What would the effects be on a person if a mean or hurtful post was shared in this way?
– Q. How easy do you think it is to remove photos from the internet?
