This week we are beginning to learn more about keeping ourselves safe when online. At a Year 1 level it is important that the message begin to be taught and reinforced even though it will be a number of years before they are online with limited supervision. Through these lessons we hope to offer a good foundation of knowledge and skills, which can then assist students into developing into confident and responsible digital citizens. The main component that we will be talking about during the next few weeks centres around the idea of only sharing personal information with others whom we trust. Our lesson today was about sharing information that is special and unique (ie. name, address, age etc) only with friends and people we know and trust. Throughout the lessons we will reinforce the importance of always talking to a trusted adult for guidance especially if something makes us feel uneasy. We will talk about who a trusted adult could be and identify those who we can ask for help if needed.
