Name calling is mean!

Today we visited Zippep’s Astro Circus where we were reminded that sharing unfriendly messages online or on the phone is not cool. We learnt that if you wouldn’t say something to somebody’s face, then don’t say it online. If you ever receive a message that upsets you, tell somebody about it.

We used Drawing Pad and Strip Designer to create our own poster of an iPad with a kind message. We had to choose a message that we would like to receive.

Staying Safe Online with Zippep

Today we continued our discussions about being safe and smart online.  We are learning more about acting responsibly when using digital technology but most importantly we are having lots of fun!

Roll Up! Roll Up!

 

 

 

 

 

This term we are focusing on being safe and smart when using the internet.  With the internet playing such an important role in our everyday lives it is important that we prepare our grade twos for the online world. To help our students understand the importance of cybersafety we are using an educational resource initiated by the Australian Government called Cybersmart. It offers a fun and interactive program called Zippep’s Astro Circus which is specifically designed for young children.  Zippep and his circus friends reinforce the concept of computer security through a series of games and activities.

After brainstorming all the ways in which our grade twos use the internet at home it is evident that there is a need for us to teach our children how to be safe and smart online.

          

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We are condfident that the information and knowledge the children will gain from this program will be a valuable guide as they begin their digital journey.  You will be able to follow our progress with Zippep right here on our blog each week.
