Print This Post
Nicholas Hall

In today’s society people are spending more and more time online, be it for social activities (Facebook or Twitter), for study (Wikipedia or Google) or play (video gaming). While technology has progressed at a rapid pace, the law and societies social norms have lagged behind. Slowly though the law is starting to catch up, and with it there has a been an increase in people being sued for things they have done online. As a consequence people are starting to learn what is acceptable behavior and what isn’t. We offer a presentation on online awareness, aimed a high school students that will make them aware of the very real consequences of their online actions.

What do we cover?

  • Appropriate behavior online and the legal implications of bad online behavior
  • Online defamation
  • Privacy settings on social media platforms and why they are important
  • Cyber-crime
  • The basics of copyright and how it relates to pirating
  • What plagiarism is and how to reference properly

Outcomes

  • Students will have a good understanding of how they should behave online, and why it is important.
  • Students will have a basic understanding of copyright law, why it is important and the negative effects of piracy.
  • Students will understand how to reference properly and why it is important to reference.

Who should attend?

  • Students aged 13 and older - The talk is ideal for any students, in high school who actively use computers and technology at school or at home.
  • Teachers – While the talk is aimed at students, teachers will get some valuable insight into what the issues of interacting online are and how they can help mold their students behaviors.
  • Parents - Parents need to know how their children should behave online and bring these teachings into the home.

The talk is designed to be highly interactive with the audience, with QR codes embedded into the presentation to allow students to have access to source material during the presentation. Questions from the students are highly encouraged and the talk will naturally shift its focus to the topic that the Students engage with the most. Students will be given a summary of the talk to take away.
