Learning Digital Wizardry in Order to be Safe in the Digiverse!

Year 5 have been exploring the ‘digiverse’ and are becoming digital wizards in a time where online safety, respect and health are vitally important!

This week is a week of cyber safety and Year 5 have taken it up a level! Within our English, PSHE and ICT lessons, we have been becoming digital warriors with a view to educating those who are unaware of – not only the many advantages of the digital word – but the many disadvantages. We have been working with the advice and support of the ‘Write Brothers’ in our digital rooms so we can create an educational video which presents a balanced argument on the positives and negatives of the digital world. We have been discussing such things as hacking, identify theft, cyber bullying and Instagram posts and constantly questioning how our online behaviour can impact our online happiness. It has become evident that there is a clear need for moderation when it comes to the ‘digiworld’ as overuse of any of the aspects of the digital age seems to raise issues.
