Internet Safety Day is on Tuesday 9th February 2021. To assist with home learning during this national lockdown, Saltmine have adapted their internet safety productions into new digital resources for primary and secondary school students. These resources explore the dangers online to help students navigate the ever-growing and changing digital world in a safe and secure way.
As teaching has moved into virtual learning amid lockdown restrictions, Saltmine have produced these resources to fit into the current school curriculum for Internet Safety Week commencing Monday 8th February.
Primary School Resource
This is an interactive, educational lesson featuring presenters and fun characters with the purpose of equipping children on how to stay safe on the internet. Featuring home activities, interactive scenarios and exclusive clips from our internet safety show, Escape, this session will take children through what makes apps and games safe and unsafe, how to protect personal information and what to do if you feel worried or upset online.
Secondary School Resource
Open this phone and you will find the social media accounts of two teenagers, Nathan and Samantha, carving their own paths across various online platforms. They’re faced with tough decisions surrounding cyberbullying, sexting, pornography and online grooming.
Within this safe space, choices are put into the hands of participating young people as they are empowered to make wise choices and take control of what happens next.
How can we tread with confidence whilst leaving an inevitable digital footprint? Using case studies, testimonies and helpful tips, the facilitators within this educational resource unpack these issues sensitively and directly. Young people are equipped to manage their online profiles with insight, caution and creativity, as they learn how to make the internet work for them.
