Pause and Think Online

Posted by:

Creating words, lyrics or video and entering them into the Pause and Think Online Video Contest is an imaginative approach to introducing Digital Citizenship into the primary classroom. It is also a fun method into motivating your students to pause and think when they are online and also a super way to inspire them and get there creative juices flowing!

Pause and think about it

Pause and Think Online, is an animated song that helps parents and educators teach the concept of digital citizenship to younger children. The song  highlights how to be safe, responsible, and respectful digital citizens by using familiar body parts (head, heart, arms, tummy, and legs) to give children examples of how appropriate online behaviour is similar to appropriate offline behaviour. It is great fun to listen to and sing along with, even if your class does not enter the competition.
