is there a way to make e-safety sound 'cool'

Discussion in 'Computing and ICT' started by Jan_Webb, Jan 26, 2012.

  1. Funny you should say that - I've been updating the Safer Internet day resource collection this week - and there are some great ideas there. Why not check out Smartie the Penguin and the Captain's adventures, as well as the secondary resources - might give some visuals for great displays that appeal to all ages! https://www.tes.co.uk/article.aspx?storyCode=6065755

    You'll also love these posters that NEN/Northern Grid for Learning have just added to their profile.... from the well respected e-safety guru Simon Finch (@simfin on twitter) -

  2. I'd steer clear of "cyber" anything - not a term the kids would use.

    One display I had was a series of news articles about stupid people on the Internet along with a number of gravestones with the pictures of people who died because, for example, they changed their relationship status on Facebook.
  3. It isn't cool, is it?
    I could waste a lot of time telling my daughters that with the risk of STDs, abusive relationships, broken hearts etc etc, they shouldn't bother with boys.
    This will have no effect - I would be shocked and frankly a little disappointed if it did.
    Ditto with 'e-safety'.
    Such a consumer of valuable time and so duuuuuuuuuull.
  4. I think it's because they get the e-safety stuff every 10 minutes.
    One way of livening it up a bit is to talk about the interesting e-safety failures - the 419 scams for example, and the revenge. Might actually sink in more than droning on for the zillionth time about predators and so on.
