Internet Safety Week 2019: Monday 11th February- Monday 18th February  

As part of our Digital Citizenship programme, students in all year groups have been grappling with the many thorny issues, connected to digital usage.  This has taken place during all five tutor periods this week and has provided tutors with the opportunity to tackle a range of issues using resources selected from Hong Kong, UK, Australia, Canada and the USA. The resources were also reviewed in advance by the Digital Leadership Council, which has helped provide a differentiated and relevant analysis of the key discussion areas. A summary of the topics can be seen below:

Year 7– Digital Footprints, Digital Rights, Think Before You Post, Sherry Turkle Ted Talk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7Xr3AsBEK4
