This lesson for grades 9-10 asks: How do you present yourself to the world online and offline? Students explore how they and others represent themselves online and the relationship between online and offline selves. Students begin by looking at a slideshow of people and their avatars and reflecting on how people can present themselves online. Students then watch a video of a teen talking about what it means to be “real” or “fake” online and discuss the video in groups, relating these issues to their own online selves. They learn that assuming different personas online carries both benefits and risks. Co-developed by Common Sense Media and the GoodPlay Project at Harvard University's Graduate School of Education, this lesson is one of 70 available in the full K-12 Digital Literacy and Citizenship curriculum from Common Sense Media.
