Digital Citizenship Activity Cards {Designed for Safer Internet Day 2019}

Created By: Kim Maslin, Digital Technologies Educator

Date Published: 23 November 2018

These task cards were created to celebrate Safer Internet Day 2019, however they are suitable for use all year round. A fun and practical collection of 24 different activities which teach students about digital citizenship, focusing on key cybersafety issues.
About the Task Cards
These 24 activity task cards are designed for students to complete after having read each of the stories from the illustrated children’s book, The Tweeting Galah by Kim Maslin. Each task is linked to the four critical skills:
  • x6 activities for “The Tale of the Tweeting Galah” – RESPECT
  • x6 activities for “The Strange Story of the Singing Clownfish” – REASONING
  • x6 activities for “The Sensational Saga of the Bumbling Bilby” – RESILIENCE 
  • x6 activities for “The Curious Case of the Overly Playful Platypus” – RESPONSIBILITY 
These cards are suitable for use as part of literacy rotations, early finisher/extension activities or whole class cybersafety/digital citizenship activities.
Some of the activities link specifically back to the story and characters, while other activities are broader and you do not need to have read the stories in order to complete them.
