'Let all that you do be done in love'
1 Corinthians 16:14
Here at Great Milton C of E Primary School, we cover ICT in every class across a range of different subjects, from data collection to publishing information. We use a variety of methods such as every day office software and small technological equipment (cameras, ‘Beebots’, microphones etc.) to cover the ICT curriculum throughout the school.
Children are encouraged to be more independent with their use of technologies as they move up the school, always bearing in mind the importance of e-safety and the conscious use of software.
Safer Internet Day
Each year, we ensure that we have a whole school assembly in which we discuss how we can safely share images online. We think about what we should do before you take and share a photo: STOP, THINK and ASK YOURSELF these 4 questions:
- Who am I sharing this photo with?
- Who else might get to see it?
- What will people be able to find out out about me?
- What will people be able to find out about the other people in the photo?
Children complete e-safety activities, for example, understanding about writing on people’s social media walls, discussing what is appropriate to say and deciding whether images are real or have been digitally altered. Our take-home message is: THINK BEFORE YOU POST!
