In our ever increasing digital world, it was wonderful to receive some useful updates from our Learning Technology Coordinator this week.
Mr Adam Astley came to An Phu Primary campus to explain what we can do to ensure the safety of our children, but also to educate them about being good citizens online.
Perhaps the biggest take away for me, as a parent, was the realisation that instead of it being called digital citizenship, it should be just citizenship. Treating others online just as we would treat them face to face. Respect, Integrity and Care, are all attributes from our Aide Memoir that are equally as important online as they are in our day to day, face to face interactions.
Mr. Adam also told us that the Internet is like a city, some wonderful places to visit, some fantastic things to see, but also some areas where we might not or should not go. It was reassuring to know that there is much in place to help secure the internet for all of us and much work has been done here at BIS to share this information with our school community including, students teachers and parents.
If you were unable to attend the talk, Mr. Adam's presentation is on the Hub. Please click here to take a look. I would also encourage you to take time to look at the parents section of the digital citizen site (same link) where Adam has uploaded many documents and tips for parents to help guide them through the digital world.
