Cyber Tip

Think It Over First!

The right to control images of yourself is a basic right. You have to protect it. You also have to respect other people’s right to control images of themselves. So think carefully before posting photos or videos of others online. Do you have their permission?

It is impossible to have total control over photos and videos posted on the Internet. As soon as they are posted online, other people can download them, edit them or share them with other people.
Important! On some social networks, the default privacy setting is “Public.” This means that hundreds of millions of people have access to your pictures and videos. You can change this setting so that only your friends can see your pictures and videos.

SHAPING UP WITH “BLOCKS”

You will need two sets of the same items, can be done with blocks, Lego, or even just a group of household items. The first person (the director) sets up their objects in some sort of shape or design on the table or floor out of sight of the second person. Then the object is to explain to the second person (the listener) how to place the items so they match the first design. Switch roles and try the activity again.

Questions to ask after the activity has been completed:

  • What did you learn giving directions to others?
  • Why is this a difficult activity?
  • Why is listening and following instructions important?
  • How did the director and listener work together?
  • How can they improve working together?
  • How did you feel having to follow directions without being able to see the pattern?
