MOMO Internet Safety Challenge

Standard

With pupils worried about the MOMO Challenge, we had a special Computing lesson looking at Internet Safety, as the MOMO Challenge maybe fake but we still need to stay safe.

CBBC – MOMO Challenge #FAKENEWS

BBC – What to do if something online upsets you.

Over the years in school we have done loads on internet safety so try the game Band Runner to see if you can stay safe. https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/8_10/

On Wednesday Morning Mr Connolly is holding an internet safety workshop for all parents – remind yours to come along and find out more.

Be safe… be seen. (well almost!)

Adding a picture to our Google account really helps other users find us, but is it safe?

facebook

For some online systems like Facebook it can help people find and friend people that we know in real life.  However you can only have Facebook from the age of 13!

From our earlier work on internet safety we need to think carefully before we put images and information online.  Our school e-mail already has our name, school and so adding a picture is a step too far.

BUT we want to make it easy for our friends so we can add a picture of ourselves… Just not a photograph but an AVATAR.

An avatar is an image or symbol that represents you in the online world.  Today we are going to make our own avatar using one of the websites below.  This image is what we can use to be our Google profile picture.

When we have made our avatar we have a big decision to make with some websites…  Do we give our e-mail address to them to download the image?

What do you think we should do? 

No Phishing

Standard

At the start of this year we have been looking at e-mailing.  Everyone has been given an e-mail address and there own password.  It would be great that is by half term we can all remember our secret password and no longer need to use the label.

We are very carefully thinking about e-mail addresses we trust as there are unfortunately people out there that try and trick and scam people by PHISHING – using e-mail address and fake e-mails to try and trick us.

Staying Safe Online

Standard

With the start of the new school year we revisit all we have learned about internet safety and how as we get older it is still relevant, in fact as we get even more competent with a computer we can do far more so come in contact with far more people in the digital world.

We know that in school we have filters and monitoring software that is used to keep us safe but sometimes even with these in place we need to TELL an adult when we feel uncomfortable.

Remember our school computer rules.

  • Don’t switch off the program or close the screen.
  • Only use technology when you are supervised by an adult.
  • Close the laptop or turn over an iPad.
  • Tell an Adult.

But we don’t just use computers in school we use them outside, where there aren’t as many filters in place.
