The internet is a fantastic teaching resource. It opens up a world of opportunity to learn more, communicate in different ways and use the treasure trove of fun educational games and apps. We should embrace the information age we live in – it’s our children’s future.
However, we must also all take responsibility to safe-guard our children and keep them E-safe. We at 123ICT are proud to be official supporters of National Safer Internet Day on 11th February. We hope that many of our Oxfordshire schools will make this an opportunity to ‘create a better internet together’.
Following our previous email, we’ve been hearing about some of the fantastic events happening at 123ICT schools in our region to support the day:
• West Witney Primary will be running 40 minute e-Safety workshops for each KS2 class throughout the day followed by a drop-in session for parents in the evening.
• Stonesfield Primary tell us that “We have had very positive feedback from parents after our 123ICT Internet Safety training evening last term. Since then 123ICT have run workshops with our teachers and some classes, we hope all classes will have had their training by Easter. National Internet Safety Day will give us a further opportunity to reinforce the safety message. We have reminded parents and carers via our newsletter to make sure they are aware of the internet safety issues and to visit the CEOP and Thinkyouknow websites for information.”
• Cumnor Church of England Primary have conveniently arranged for 123ICT to run pupil and staff workshops on the very day, 11th February. So we will be providing onsite guidance on how to promote ‘a better internet together’.
We’d love to hear what your school has planned for the day.
