This week we have been learning about Cyber safety. With the rise in technology use, it is important for children to develop the skills for navigating and staying safe online. The activities that we have explored were designed for young people setting up their first device or Signing up to a social media accounts for the first time. Students have developed skills in using device and app security settings to prevent unwanted contact and protect their personal information appropriately.
Children brainstormed accessible information online and we then discussed which online content may be unsafe. We also talked about the solutions for making particular examples safer such as using privacy settings, not giving out personal information and checking the ratings for videos and other online content. (The coloured bubbles indicate those items the children identified as posing some risk to their safety.)
Please find attached a book which has been written for children in regards to safety online you may like to read and discuss the contents of the book as a follow up to their recent new found knowledge.
