Today the children the Senior Classes (1st to 6th) in participated in activities to celebrate Safer Internet Day.
In Don’s 6th class the children completed a research quiz using the internet on famous explorers.
What they didn’t know, was that one of the information sources provided actually contained false information !
This activity opened up a worthwhile discussion on the need to validate research information, by checking its accuracy from a variety of internet sources, especially well known and trusted sites.
The children concluded by having a look at a very interesting website www.thedogisland.com.
Have a look for yourself ! There’s NOWHERE quite like it !
In Danielle’s 2nd class, the children loved learning about ‘Buddy the Dog’s’ internet safety story and engaging in a quiz about it.
They learned Buddy’s ‘Use your tablet safely !’ song and created a poster to promote internet safety too.
All children from 1st to 6th class, received a wristband to promote Safer Internet Day and the importance of making sure that their internet experiences are enjoyable and most importantly safe !
