The Students Share Why the Internet is Like the Mall

The students decided to share their conversation on why they feel the internet is like the mall and how we can set safety rules to follow:
At the mall,
  • We don't talk to strangers because we don't know them.
  • Don't go to random places because you don't know what will happen there, it may be inappropriate, a virus, or dangerous.
  • Don't follow strangers even if they promise you candy. This means don't click on pop up links.
  • Don't agree to meet strangers outside of the mall.
  • Go where you are supposed to go.
  • Don't be fooled by how nice something looks.
  • If you end up somewhere you shouldn't, just leave. On the internet close out the window or hit the back button.Check out where you are going before you go there and make sure your teacher/parent approves.
  • Don't give out personal information, first name only and no address.
  • Ask for permission before you go somewhere new.
  • Don't believe someone is a friend of a friend.
  • Don't share your password.
This was published on my professional blog as well to help other teachers.

This is a really helpful list and I had not thought of the comparisons with a shopping mall. I'm sure it will help other children stay safe.
