eSmart Week

As part of our commitment to the eSmart program, students in all grades participated in classroom activities to learn more about being safe and responsible online.

 

The grade preps watched a video called 'Hector's World'. 

Here is a link to some of the Hector's World videos:

The grade 1-2 students completed tasks online and class tasks based on the online program 'Zippep's Astro Circus'. This program teaches students the acronym THINK which represents:

 

T - tell a trusted adult if you see something innapropriate online

 

H - hide your passoword and only share it with a trusted adult, not your friends

 

I - interesting webistes can be fun but check with an adult if the webiste is suitable for you

 

N - name calling and being mean is not cool, it is cyberbullying

 

K - keep your personal information safe. Never share your first name, phone number or address with        

     people over the Internet. Use a nickname in chat rooms or for login names.

The grade 3-4 students completed activities called 'Budd-e' where they had to learn aout different ways of staying safe using technology. Each time they completed a task, they got a body part to make up their own 'Budd-e' robot.

The grade 5-6 students participated in a webinar about cyberbullying. They were online at the same time as many other students around Australia.

 

The eSmart Student Committee planned a colouring competition for the grade prep - 2 students.

The grade 3-6 students were asked to design a cybersafety mascot that uses technology safely and displays the school values.
