Internet Safety Instruction in Davis School District

In Davis School District, all students are the recipients of programs and education regarding internet safety. This is required to be an annual exposure and educational experience for all students.

In elementary schools, students will receive lessons regarding internet safety from their classroom teachers as well as the Computer Technology teachers and lab managers. This instruction typically occurs during students' Computer Technology class time. In addition, most schools promote safe online behavior through assemblies and other school wide activities.

In secondary schools, the only classrooms that have internet safety and cyberbullying as part of the curriculum are in Health and Computer Technology. Additional programs and instruction are held during assemblies, home rooms, advisory periods, etc. The librarian in each secondary school plays a role in providing access to resources and providing instruction regarding internet safety to teachers, students, and members of the community.

Teaching Resources

How do we teach Internet Safety?

Teaching students about internet safety can be done in a variety of ways. We should consider that the delivery methods we use to teach students can contribute to how effective and long-lasting that learning will be for students.

One-Time Assemblies or Programs

Often schools will arrange to have an assembly or program to share information with students. The assembly is often coordinated with PTSA activities. It is recommended to connect the assembly to conversations with students in smaller settings, either in the classroom or poster "public service messages" in the hall.

Class Lessons or Presentations

In a classroom setting, students can participate in a series of lessons discussing internet safety. These classroom conversations may be part of advisory, flex period, or another scheduled classroom setting. The following are possible ways to enhance the classroom conversation. 

  • Guest speakers such as parents, members of the community, or community leaders.
  • Student presenters (peer counselors or students involved in student leadership [SBO's])
  • Socratic questioning strategies

Providing students with short lessons that can be used very quickly to generate conversation at the beginning of class while students are arriving and settling into the classroom. There are a number of Public Service Message videos that are appropriate for use with students in different grade levels.

Curriculum Map for Secondary Schools

Curriculum Map for Secondary Schools

How should the CIPA requirements for annually teaching internet safety to students be sequenced and paced?  CIPA requires that we teach students about the following general topics:  "Schools must certify, as part of their Internet safety policy, they are educating minors about appropriate online behavior, including cyberbullying awareness and response and interacting with other individuals on social networking sites and in chat rooms.http://www.netsafeutah.org/cipa.htm (Emphasis added)  As a result of conversation, we have identified a sequence for topics that fulfill the requirements of CIPA and allow teachers to break instruction into smaller segments, allowing for the natural inclusion of internet safety issues into the course of regular instruction and easily accessible.
