Being respectful online – E-Safety club discussion

Today in our E-Safety officers meeting we thought it was important for our school to understand how to be respectful on the internet.

We would like each class to comment on this blog post answering the question what does respect online mean and how can we make sure we are always respectful?

You can read each other’s entries too.

    We believe, that to be respectful online, you need to show manners and speak kindly. We see no difference to how we should behave online to how we behave everyday offline.

    We can make sure that we are always respectful online by:
    – Using kind words
    – Not being malicious
    – Being respectful to other people’s privacy
    – Respecting the age certificate

    In Class 2B we had a chat about being respectful when you are using the internet. These are the things we felt are ways to be respectful online:

    – Always say kind words.

    – If someone gives you something to comment on, you can make sure you give a nice comment.

    – Treat people like you would on the playground and in real life.

    – You could say things like “I like your armour” in Minecraft. This is a kind thing to say.

    – Make people feel safe like they are at home.

    Most important of all – ALWAYS ask an adult if you can use the internet and tell someone you trust if something makes you feel unsafe.

    We thought that there were lots of ways that we can be respectful online and these are a few of the ideas that 5E came up with:

    – Don’t hack other people’s accounts.
    – Never cyber-bully
    – Don’t say bad words on the internet because younger children might see them.
    – Don’t put bad comments on other people’s videos or photo’s because it could upset them and stop them from doing something that they love and enjoy.
    – Don’t play games that have a minimum age requirement on them.
    – Don’t put inappropriate things online that might upset or offend people.

    We also decided that if somebody wasn’t being respectful online or if you got your early warning signs you should report it to computer providers, the police or trusted adult.

    *If someone is mean to you, don’t be mean back to them. Instead, you could leave that page and tell an adult.

    *Use kind words

    *Don’t use swear words or threatening language

    *Act the same way online as you do offline; don’t change your attitude or behaviour (this means that you won’t be a cyber bully)

    *Don’t buy anything without your parents’ permission

    *Only go on websites that you are allowed to go on; stay away from violent or unsafe ones

    *Don’t hurt anyone’s feelings or embarrass them

    *Keep your personal information safe

    *Don’t start fights on the internet

    *Be respectful when playing games with other people online; don’t ruin the games and fun for them

    I am very impressed with our children’s attitude to e-safety. It is really important that the children go home and share these views with their parents and carers too.
