Safer Internet Day 2019 followup | February 14, 2019

On Tuesday 5th February, Richard Avenue celebrated Safer Internet Day 2019. The aim of Safer Internet Day is to inspire a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively.

This year we held individual lessons to both talk and demonstrate to the children how consent works in an online context.

We watched videos on the topics and then held question and answer sessions so the children could explore how to ask, give, and receive consent online. We finished off the sessions by asking the children to design posters and online chats that deal with the issues of consent.

Some of these posters and online chat designs are shown below:

Safer Internet Day 2019 | January 31, 2019

On Tuesday 5th February, Richard Avenue will be celebrating Safer Internet Day 2019. The aim of Safer Internet Day is to inspire a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively. Throughout the Day we will be holding a number of activities, including a whole school assembly and individual lessons to both talk and demonstrate to the children how consent works in an online context and will ask young people to explore how they ask, give, and receive consent online. This could be in their friendships or relationships, how they take and share images and videos or how they manage their privacy and data.

Here are some videos about the day aimed at different age groups:

Here is the campaign film for Safer Internet Day 2019 which we hope sums up clearly what the day is all about.
Zap and Zoom – A Space Race – film for 3-7 year olds.
Data Detective – film for 7-11 year olds.
