Student Blogging Challenge 6: Digital Footprint

Hi, this week I am writing about being a responsible online citizen, enjoy!

The internet is becoming an ever-increasing part of a child’s life and honestly, being a child myself I agree although it is fun, it can also be dangerous . I did activity 5 for the Student Blogging Challenge 6. It was to play this online game on Digizen about cyberbullying, I quite enjoyed it, and got a good score in my opinion, although some of the choices you have to make are quite challenging. I found myself thinking about who to ask questions to many times. I also looked around on the website and found many useful resources, but I had hardly enough time to look at all of them. I will provide a link to the game at the end of the post.

In my opinion, being an online citizen of any type just means using a device linked to the internet, even if you never use the internet feature. I also think that being a responsible online citizen means respecting anyone’s choices online and offline. Some tips about digital citizenship are:

  • Always make sure that you only open e-mails, texts or any type of message if it is from someone you know or a company you trust. If you receive a hoax or bullying e-mail or text that you report it to a teacher, parent or adult you can trust.
  • Always treat someone online the same way that you would treat them in real life, and also if you witness cyberbullying, don’t just stand there, do something about it like tell a teacher, parent or adult you trust.
  • Also, never post a picture of someone online without their consent.

These are but a few tips to being responsible online.

Student Blogging Challenge 9: Game Week

Hi, here is the post I have been most looking forward to, game week!!! Enjoy!

I had to play two different sorts of games, although they were both about commenting. The first game I played was called ‘Count Out Three’. You had to visit a blog from the student list and count one. Then visit a blog from their blogroll and count two. Then visit a blog from that blogroll. Leave a comment on the last blog. The first blog was called Will’s Wacky Blog. I followed a link to the second blog. The second blog was called Sophie’s Zone of Uber Awesome Wacky Stuff. From there I found the third blog. The third blog was called Heidi wildlife lovers. I left a comment there. I repeated this process twice more afterwards

The second game was to visit a mentor’s blog and leave a comment on one of their posts. You also have to answer a question in the comment. I had to do this twice. I visited learning2gether and themiddlematters. These blogs both have very interesting posts. I highly recommend checking them out. The blogs also had links to different posts on the blog and you have to mention three posts that you found interesting during the blogging challenge, here they are.

The first is one that is one that I wrote. It is for Challenge 6: Digital Citizenship, the second was featured on learning2gether. It was called Cardboard Challenge, where a kid named Caine makes his own arcade out of cardboard, and it goes viral in days. The third is featured on themiddlematters and is called My Story. It is wrote by Simon, an eleven year old boy. It is in my opinion the best one and he even was lucky enough to be noticed by an author. I have now bookmarked the blog, as it is very exciting in terms of the content.

I really enjoyed the Student Blogging Challenge.
