On the 28th of September, two members of the Google team visited Boundary Primary School to teach the children about internet safety.
They learnt the ‘Internet Legends Code’:
• BE INTERNET SHARP
Think Before You Share
Good (and bad) news travels fast online, and children can sometimes find themselves in tricky situations with lasting consequences. But what can they do to prevent this? The answer: understand how to share smartly with those they know – and those they don’t.
• BE INTERNET ALERT
Check It's For Real
People and situations online aren’t always what they seem. Internet Legends know how to tell the difference between what’s real and what’s not.
• BE INTERNET SECURE
Protect Your Stuff
Personal privacy and security are as important online as they are in the real world. Keeping valuable information safe helps children avoid damaging their devices, reputations and relationships.
• BE INTERNET BRAVE
When in Doubt, Discuss
When children come across something they're not sure about online, they should feel comfortable talking to a trusted adult. Adults can support this by showing they're open to talking, even about difficult or embarrassing things at home and in the classroom.
