Module 3- Project Proposal

By Amanda Huang and Ockto Lee

What we plan to do is explain the importance of privacy and security of social media to high school students. Our approach is to use Prezi and Youtube as a way to communicate our ideas as it is a clear way, and the high school students are familiar with Prezi and Youtube.


Module 2: Google

Using Google:

  1. How would you search for an exact word or phrase?
    Remembering just a bit of a quote or line from a song may help you find the exact words and phrases. Type in what you remember and you will most likely find it.
  2. How would you search for something on a specific site?
    Type in the business or domain, such as .gov or .edu, along with what you want to search for.
  3. How would you correctly search for a definition?
    Type in words such as define or definition along with the word. Google itself has a built in dictionary, which is a trusting source.
  4. How would you search for a specific product available within a specific price range?
    Using two periods in between the numbers along with the product you are looking for.
  5. How would you search for a specific filetype?
    Typing in what you are searching for alone with the filetype such as PDF or DOC.
    “word pdf”
  6. How would you include or ignore words in your search?
    Using the word “OR” to specify your options or using a dash to ignore words.
    “OR” “word-word”
  7. How would you find related pages?
    After searching what you need, scroll down the where it says “Searches related to…” and there you will find many related pages.
  8. How would you find pages containing one of several words you are interested in, though not all of them?
    Typing in the specific words you are interested in and using the dash to ignore any words. If it is from Google books, you can type in the specific words and it will be highlighted for you. 
  9. How would you find the time in another country?
    Typing in the country and then time or current time. Google will provide information on the current time, time zone and current date.
    “Country time”
  10. How would you find out how many Egyptian pounds you get for $20 Canadian dollars?
    Using the words currency conversion can lead you to sites that can help convert the money. Or simply typing in “Egyptian pounds to Canadian dollars” will automatically lead you to the Google conversion with 1 pound, and you can easily adjust the numbers.

Module 1: Digital Etiquette


Part of having presentable digital etiquette is to draw a borderline between what is being posted privately and what is being posted publicly. For instance, you don’t want to post pictures of you having too much fun at a bar on Facebook, where your future employers can see…
Private/Public Information: Professional Etiquette
It is common for employers to do a quick online profile search of you these days, so by presenting yourself in a good manner will reduce the risk of problems. As users, we have the power to control our privacy settings, and it is so important to set those boundaries, because you don’t want the risk of potentially losing a job.
Private/ Public Information: Family and Friends
Even for family and friends, you may want to set the boundaries of public and private information that is being shared digitally. For example, if there are kids on your Facebook friend list, you don’t want to be cussing online…
Taking advantage of private messaging can again, reduce the risk of problems.
Cyber Bullying
Be careful of what you post and what you say online, as it can spread in an instant. This includes the rise of cyber bullying–digital etiquette is obviously not acknowledged at all, and this hurts both the bully and the victim.

These are just a few factors of how digital etiquette affects every online user. Nowadays, it seems that everyone has an online identity. Keep digital etiquette in mind when posting things online.
