In a modernising and ever changing word, new technologies have became an integral part of lives. In today’s society both children and young people are exposed to a wide array of technologies, both within schools and in their lives outside school. Technology enables us to make connections around the world, surf the internet and access a wide range of digital information, which open up new opportunities for everyone.
When used effectively technology can provide great rewards. Technologies can promote creativity, innovation, discussion and stimulate awareness of context to promote effective learning. It is integral that children are equip with the skills to receive these benefits, at the same time, limiting the risks they may be exposed to.
E-Safety is something that everyone should be aware of and be making considerations when using any type of technology. Children are exposed to all manner of things whilst online and just like in the real world, we need to be aware of and consider carefully, our interactions in the digital world.
At St. Peter’s we celebrate International Internet Safety Day each year. This raises awareness around keeping safe online in addition to the Digital Literacy our children receive through our Computing curriculum.
