Using Premiere Pro to create a Cyber Safety Video

Lesson Plan Published 9/7/16 Last updated on 5/16/18

Goal - Your goal is to create a cyber safety video featuring students from your school.

Role - You are the producer of a television network show for 10-12 year olds and a professional video editor.

Audience - Your target audience is 10-12 Year old students across Australia that watch your show.

Situation - There has been a real concern from parents that kids ages 10-12 don't know much about cyber safety. Your video will share what kids your age really do know! This will also be a great video to teach kids around Australia how to be safe online.

Product - You will create a 1-2 minute video

Standards - Your product must meet the following standard (quality):

  • Footage of the school. This footage is supplied by the school.
  • Footage of 1 question interviews with students in your workshop. This footage is taken from your camera app on your laptop.
  • A title
  • Transitions
  • Music loop track.

Here are some possible questions you could ask:

Why do you think we learn about cyber safety?

What do you think makes someone a good digital citizen?

What do you do if someone you don't know asked to be a friend on a social network App?

Do you think kids our age are aware of how to be safe online?

Or how about these questions.....

1. Concerns about Internet safety have caused schools to restrict access to certain types of Web sites, such as social networking sites like Facebook and Instagram. Why do you think people are so concerned about staying “safe” online?

2. You are cautioned to never post your full name, age, picture, or location online. Why is that?

Are there other pieces of personal information that shouldn’t be shared, or other things that you should or should not do, in order to stay safe online?

3. Do you have an adult that you trust and can talk to about online situations that make you feel scared, uncomfortable, or confused? This can be a parent, your teacher, or another adult that you would feel comfortable talking to.

4. If you found out that one of your friends was making up stories about someone and posting them online, or sending nasty email messages to somebody, what do you think you should do? Stay out of it, because it’s not your problem, or tell someone who could talk to your friend about his or her behavior?

5. What should you do if you get a “friend” request on a social network from someone that you don’t know face-to-face?

6. How might you use social networking tools to collaborate with students in other classrooms?

7. Under what conditions do you think a member should be banned from taking part in a social network? What could a banned member do to be allowed to rejoin the network community?

Good luck on your news story!
