Student Notes

1 Que fais-tu pour assurer que tu sois responsable en ligne ?

Activity: Other — Reflecting

Have students brainstorm in French the steps they take online to protect themselves and to ensure that they are ethical and responsible. Have them make a list of these steps. 

Then have pairs of students discuss their lists, compare, edit and refine them.

2 Exploration

Divide your class into 7 groups (this is based on the number of modules in the link above). 

Instruct students to progress as follows Note that this is for a year 4 (or higher) class, therefore all of the below would be done in French): 

  1. Complete the quiz for your module and take notes on the information that the organization recommends that individuals do (or don't do) in order to be safe and responsible digital citizens in this area. 
  2. Work together to create a poster session in French about the content of your module. Your poster session should contain at least three key ideas of this facet of digital citizenship represented by a symbol you design and a key word or phrase. Nothing else goes on the poster for your station.
  3. Practice speaking at your poster session. You will be divided up, so one or two students will stay behind with the poster to explain the information and the other one or two students will circulate to the other stations, listen to their presentations and take notes. Remember that your posters are just visuals to help guilde your speaking. You should be prepared to talk about your topics.
  4. After everyone has had a chance to present their poster sessions and also to listen to the other poster sessions, come back together as a group to compare notes.

3 Collaboration et création

Instruct students to:

  1. Discuss their notes
  2. Decide on five key steps teenagers can take today to improve their digital citizenship
  3. Research to find a statistic related to each step.
  4. Create an infographic using Piktochart. In the infographic, students should visualize the statistic and highlight the step(s) the students recommend other teenagers take. 


4 Partage

Share the infographics on a group twitter or instagram account. Decide as a class with handles and hashtags should be included in order to target their intended audience (French-speaking teenagers) and what message should accompany the image of their infographic.
