This week for Cybersmart we had a serious discussion about 'The Power of Words'. We
- discussed words/phrases that are commonly used to hurt a person online.
- discussed reasons of why people hurt others online through the power of words.
- role played different scenarios related to 'the power of words' and discussed positive solutions to these situations.
We enjoyed this lesson as it raised some in-depth discussions and questions about cyberbully and how people use mean words to communicate and hurt others online. It's important that we are taught some important strategies on how to respond to people when they are writing mean things about us or to us online.
This is a cybersmart lesson that will continue on next week and we look forward to the second part of this lesson - THE POWER OF WORDS.
