ABOUT OUR $5 CLASSES
Our $5 classes are one lesson, self paced, in depth classes that allow you to see if the Next Level Homeschool format, and the different teaching styles of each of our three instructors, matches your child's learning style! $5 classes differ from other Next Level Homeschool courses in that there are no project/assignments to turn in for grading/feedback, no report card, and no student discussion. Other than that, the format and style is what you can expect from our other courses.
$5 classes start every Tuesday during the semester. We send out class access instructions every Tuesday for all enrollments received on or before Monday. You will have access all semester (close date listed below).
In this digital age we live in, it is almost impossible to avoid using the internet! However, many students who use the internet regularly for classwork or fun may not understand what it truly means to be safe and secure when using the World Wide Web. Fear not! This class will teach you and your students all about the importance of internet safety and what the best practices are for protecting yourself against cyber threats.
The point of this course is to prepare students to think critically and use technology in positive and powerful ways!
This course begins with understanding why it is important to use safety precautions when online. We will learn what it means to have an online identity, a digital footprint, and an online community. Then we will explore some practices for personal safety, including how to protect you and your personal information from cyber threats. We will also explore what cyber bullying is, what causes online disinhibition, and ways we can deal with and avoid and de-escalate situations involving cyber bullying, digital drama, and hate speech. Finally, we will focus on what it means to our well-being to maintain a healthy media balance in our lives! After completing the lesson plan, students can take the quiz to test their understanding of the material.
Each lesson consists of a fully narrated PowerPoint presentation with images and videos to enhance the topics. Students will have access to our learning management system, Canvas, for viewing their lesson, printing worksheets, and taking quizzes. $5 classes do not have graded assignments or teacher feedback.
