WALA Staying safe on the Internet
Today is ‘Safer Internet Day 2021’ and we are going to remind you of how you can stay safe on the Internet, while enjoying all of its benefits and possibilities.
Visit this page as it tells you how to game, explore and communicate on the Internet safely. Before you read each section it would be fantastic for you to tell an adult how you keep yourself safe on the web.
- Online Choices Compass – read through each scenario and decide what you think (there are 5 different choices). Discuss your answer with an adult, but think really carefully before you decide.
- Feelings - think how the scenarios on the ‘feelings’ slide would make the person feel and discuss each one with an adult. Extension: can you come up with your own scenario to do with staying safe online?
- The last activity is all about the vocabulary that people use online. For example, if you understand that phishing is dangerous then when you hear that wor you know that sites that are proven to be phishing are dangerous. See if you can match up the words to their definitions. How many can you get on your own? If you are stuck then use a dictionary or ask an adult.
