Year 4 have made picture promises to mark safer internet day 2017…
I have been talking to key stage 2 children about how photos can be edited to change their appearance. Here are three pictures I took with my mobile phone on holiday last year in Scotland. I edited each one using an app called Tadaa. Can you tell how I have changed each photo?
I have been talking to KS2 about Safer Internet Day. The theme this year is ‘The Power of Image’. We have been looking at the following themes about images:
– It’s there forever
– There’s more than meets the eye
– Is it true
– What will other think
We discussed these themes with this presentation:
And then watched this video:
As part of our Safer Internet Day activities, KS2 have been completing quizzes to help them make sensible choices when online. I have been using Kahoot, an excellent website for setting quizzes which you can complete on tablets, phones or computers.
The year 3/4 quiz is based on ‘The Adventures of Kara, Winston and the Smart Crew’, an excellent series of short videos which teachers children the SMART rules of internet safety. You can try the quiz yourself by clicking on the link below.
The year 5/6 quiz includes some of the questions from the year 3/4 quiz, but without the videos to help answer them. There are additional questions prompted by this CEOP video. I have included a link rather than embedding the video, as the themes maybe upsetting for some younger children. You can try the quiz by clicking on the link below.
The best way for children to stay safe online is for parents and carers to maintain a dialogue with them. I would strongly advise you to visit the UK Safer Internet Centre, and in particular the pages for parents and carers where you can find advice and guidance on a variety of internet safety issues including ISP settings, social network privacy settings and gaming.
If you have ay questions or concerns, please come and see me in school.
Please see below the presentation from this morning’s Safer Internet Day workshop. There is also a link to further information below:
This is a great site which gives you advice on ISP settings, games, social networks and technology in general.
In the run up to Safer Internet Day 2016, KS2 will be agreeing their own digital rights and responsibilities. This activity has been inspired by the British Library’s project to create a Digital Magna Carta. Here is the inventor of the World Wide Web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee explaining why we need it:
Now, in your group choose features you would like to to include in the Digital Magna Carta. If you would like some ideas, have a look at this page.
Please see the presentation I used for the Safer Internet Day assemblies. You can also see a script by clicking on this link. Please look through the presentation with your children and discuss the issues.
