We had an afternoon of using the laptops and Ipads to research an author this afternoon. We wanted to find as much information as possible on our favourite authors so we can write a biography on them. We searched using Primary Safe Search ICT and discussed Wiki pages.
We discussed the fact that anyone can write them and we need to take care what information we trust on the internet. We talked about finding the fact three times, in three place to think it may be true- you can't believe everything you read on the internet!
During Autumn term, we learnt how to search the internet safely. We use Primary Safe Search ICT. We looked at how many websites become filtered once you go through a safer search engine. The children were amazed by how much was then blocked!
We love using the internet to support our lessons but we know how as amazing as it can be, it can also be dangerous and we need to do all we can to protect ourselves.
We learnt about the report button and discussed what we do if we come across something that makes us uncomfortable in class- Minimise the screen-do not leave the page.
- Talk to an adult.
- The adult will then report the page to the Essex team.
