I’m taking a break from my provocation series into Sustainable Development Goals for an important inquiry on the way we consume and share online.
With our White Ribbon Week observances & internet safety assemblies, most students know:
- don’t share personal information
- don’t cyberbully
- don’t meet up with strangers you met online
What we don’t talk about as often is the way they feel about their internet presence. Who do they think they need to be and why? How can they use the internet to help fill their cups, rather than drain them?
This week’s provocation is meant to help foster these deeper conversations.

- What does authenticity mean?
- How do the internet & social media invite us to connect? How can that connection be positive? How can it be negative?
- How does it work to embrace who we are even as we work to improve?
- What are side effects? What are the different perspectives on side effects of social media?
- How does balance connect to our self-care on social media?
