This is a day for everyone to get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
For some people it is hard to remember what life was like before the internet......We would write letters to friends and family instead of sending emails! We would go to actual shops to buy what we needed! We would go to the library instead of accessing them as an e-book! We would buy the latest CD (or tape) they day it came out! As well as taking photos using a camera which required a film that we had to get developed!
After discussing what we all use the internet for....we focussed on photos, which included taking the photo, editing them, taking selfies and posting photos online. As my class never cease to amaze me.....they all mentioned the importance of asking for someone's permission. This was something we had a very lengthy discussion about as a whole class and in groups! We explored the positive and negative sides of using the internet!
In pairs, we discussed at length, different examples of good and bad sharing of photos whilst using the internet. Below shows some of the children's responses.......
According to research, nearly 3 million children and young people, on Tuesday, were learning about being safe and responsible when using the internet. It's very important and the children were so engaged whilst talking through the dangers and the awareness!
Well done everyone :)
