All of the students participated in activities for Safer Internet Day.
This year’s theme was focused on developing an understanding of consent in the digital world. After discussing the different ways we use the internet across a range of devices, we considered those situations when we need to either give permission or seek permission from others.
Some instances of relevance to us include adding new people to group chats, sharing photos of us with our friends, allowing apps to access our location and other details, and knowing when it is appropriate and necessary to share our personal information with others.
The sessions culminated with a quiz on Purple Mash which helped us to review our learning of these important issues.
