The students of Castleisland Community College are making ‘InternetSafetyDay’ an everyday thing.
“Our conversation around a safer internet began on February 5th with a series of video clips shown throughout the day,” said teacher Juanita Lovett.
“These highlighted the importance of being vigilant when online. We had a PowerPoint presentation running in the canteen during lunchtime informing us of the dangers and pitfalls of social media and advice on how we can navigate it safely.
“A first-year poster competition launched the beginning of our Social Media Safety campaign – over the next few weeks classes will be taught about Internet Safety, Selfies, Fake News and Social Media platforms to name but a few.
New Technology Devices
“As a school community we are all surrounded by an increasing number of devices and new technologies.
“This opens for us a whole new way of learning and we experience this on a daily basis at school.
“From an increasingly younger age, the internet offers us unlimited opportunities at our fingertips but it also brings us the challenge to stay safe online. “But risks should never discourage anyone from being online.
Safe and Positive Experiences
“The goal is for everyone in our school to have safe and positive online experiences – where we are empowered to use the internet responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively to assist us in our learning.
