On January 19th 2018, Larwood introduced you to The Digital 5 A Day! A guide to help parents encourage their children to have a good digital diet which includes a balance of being connected, active and creative, giving to others and being mindful.
To continue our ESAFETY approach; Miss Gwynne held an asseembly about staying safe online and introduced to us the UKCCIS: UK Council for Child Internet Safety. Below, is a PDF about Education for a Connected World.
Today’s children and young people are growing up in a digital world. As they grow older, it is crucial that they learn to balance the benefits offered by technology with a critical awareness of their own and other’s online behaviour, and develop effective strategies for staying safe and making a positive contribution online. This framework describes the skills and understanding that children and young people should have the opportunity to develop at different ages and stages. It highlights what a child should know in terms of current online technology, its influence on behaviour and development, and what skills they need to be able to navigate it safely.
Please have a look throught the interactive PDF, it's a very useful resource.
