    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    What information is it OK to reveal online?

    • A.

      Home address

    • B.

      Phone number

    • C.

      Name of your school

    • D.

      Favorite movie

    Correct Answer
    D. Favorite movie
    Explanation
    It is generally considered safe to reveal information about one's favorite movie online. Unlike personal details such as home address, phone number, or name of your school, sharing your favorite movie does not pose a significant risk to your privacy or security. Favorite movies are often shared as personal preferences and do not reveal sensitive information that could be used to harm or exploit an individual. However, it is important to exercise caution and avoid sharing too much personal information online to protect oneself from potential risks.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Why do people say mean things online, or in text, instead of in person?

    • A.

      Because they are lazy

    • B.

      Because it's easier to be mean to someone over the internet instead of face to face

    • C.

      Because they think its nicer

    • D.

      Because they don't like talking

    Correct Answer
    B. Because it's easier to be mean to someone over the internet instead of face to face
    Explanation
    People say mean things online or in text instead of in person because it's easier to be mean to someone over the internet instead of face to face. The anonymity and distance provided by online platforms make it easier for individuals to hide behind a screen and express their negative thoughts without facing immediate consequences or seeing the impact on the other person's face. This lack of accountability and detachment from the real-life consequences of their actions can lead people to behave in a more hurtful and disrespectful manner online.

    Rate this question:

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Ignore the message
    B. Tell a trusted adult
    D. Block the message sender
    Explanation
    If you receive a cyber bully message, there are three things you should do. First, ignore the message, as responding may encourage the bully to continue. Second, tell a trusted adult, such as a parent or teacher, who can provide guidance and support. Third, block the message sender to prevent further communication. Sending a mean message to the bully is not recommended, as it can escalate the situation and potentially lead to negative consequences.

    Rate this question:

    • D.

      Text them back AND say something rude

    Correct Answer
    B. Ignore the message AND tell an adult
    Explanation
    When receiving a text message from an unknown number, it is important to prioritize personal safety. Ignoring the message helps to avoid potential risks associated with engaging with strangers. Additionally, informing an adult about the situation ensures that they are aware of the situation and can provide guidance or take appropriate action if necessary. This approach promotes caution and responsible behavior when faced with unfamiliar communication.

    • B.

      Your phone number

    • C.

      Your address

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    D. None of the above
    Explanation
    It is not OK to give any personal information online, including your name, phone number, or address. Sharing personal information online can put you at risk of identity theft, fraud, or other forms of misuse. It is important to protect your privacy and only share personal information with trusted sources or when necessary.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Why would you be more cautious with friends that you meet online instead of in real life?

    • A.

      You don't really know who they are

    • B.

      The online friends are always just as great as real life friends

    • C.

      Online friends are more trustworthy with secrets

    • D.

      Online friends will always lie to you

    Correct Answer
    A. You don't really know who they are
    Explanation
    When you meet friends online, you do not have the same level of personal interaction and face-to-face communication as you do with friends in real life. This lack of physical presence makes it difficult to truly know who the person behind the screen is. Online friends can easily create false identities or hide their true intentions, which is why it is important to exercise caution and be more skeptical when interacting with them compared to friends you meet in real life.

    Rate this question:

    Everything you say online is private

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "Everything you say online is private" is false. When you say something online, it can be easily accessed and seen by others, depending on the platform and privacy settings. Online conversations, posts, and messages can be shared, saved, and even leaked, compromising the privacy of the information shared. It is important to be cautious and mindful of what is shared online to protect personal privacy.

    Explanation
    Cyber bullying can have severe emotional and psychological effects on the victims. It can lead to feelings of depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and even suicide. The impact of cyber bullying is not limited to just the victims; it can also affect their friends and family who witness the harassment. Therefore, it is incorrect to say that cyber bullying does not hurt anyone.

    Correct Answer
    yelling, yeling, screaming
    Explanation
    Writing a message in all capital letters is commonly perceived as shouting or yelling in written communication. This is because capital letters are often associated with emphasis and loudness. Therefore, the reader might interpret the message as aggressive or intense, similar to yelling, yeling, or screaming.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    A bystander is someone who sees cyberbullying happening, but does nothing to help.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A bystander is someone who witnesses cyberbullying but chooses not to intervene or help in any way. This means that they may be aware of the situation but do not take any action to stop or prevent the bullying from occurring. By not doing anything, bystanders indirectly contribute to the perpetuation of cyberbullying and allow the harm to continue. Therefore, the statement "A bystander is someone who sees cyberbullying happening, but does nothing to help" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    When you empathize with someone you can imagine the feelings that someone else is feeling.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of others. When you empathize with someone, you are able to put yourself in their shoes and imagine the emotions they are experiencing. This requires a level of emotional intelligence and the capacity to connect with others on an emotional level. Therefore, the statement that when you empathize with someone, you can imagine the feelings that someone else is feeling is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Someone who helps when they see cyber bullying occur is called an...

    Correct Answer
    upstander, Upstander
    Explanation
    An upstander is someone who takes a stand against cyber bullying and actively intervenes or supports the victim. They are not just bystanders, but instead choose to speak out or take action to help prevent or stop the bullying. By using the term "upstander" twice, it emphasizes the importance of this role in countering cyber bullying and promoting a safer online environment.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    A secure password consists of a combination of letters, numbers and symbols and is at least 8 characters.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A secure password is one that is difficult to guess or crack, and using a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols makes it more complex and therefore harder to guess. Additionally, having a minimum length of 8 characters ensures that the password is not too short and provides more possible combinations, further increasing its security. Therefore, the statement that a secure password consists of a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols and is at least 8 characters is true.

      True

    • B.

    When you browse online and visit websites, you leave behind a digital footprint. This refers to the traces of data that are created and collected about you as you use the internet. These traces can include your browsing history, search queries, social media activity, and more. Therefore, the statement "When you are browsing online, and visiting the sites that you like to frequent, you are leaving your Digital Footprint" is true.
