We’ve had a bit of fun testing the strength of passwords using https://howsecureismypassword.net. I set the children a challenge of creating the most secure password they could using up to 10 characters. The best one would take a computer 53 years to crack it. Can you beat that?
From this term we will be using Showbie to save and share work between teachers and children. It is a brilliant tool which links with many of the apps we use both on the iPads and iMacs. It will also enable children to access there work from home, if they have access to the internet.
The children will be setting up their own usernames and passwords during this week’s computing lessons. As part of this we will be discussing why passwords are important and what makes a secure password.
