Exploring respect and relationships in online gaming was the theme for this year’s Safer Internet Day. From gaming to chat, to streaming and video, young people are shaping the interactive entertainment spaces they are a part of and have an important role to play in the responsible, respectful, critical and creative use of digital technology.
All pupils had the opportunity to explore how they should act or behave towards others online; the importance of keeping personal information private as well as what to do if something worries them when online. Activities included: writing respectful relationships recipes, in the moment scenarios and role play, compiling kinder internet spells, creating gaming guides, quizzes.
Remember, you might not be able to control other people’s behaviour online, but you can control your own and make respectful choices. #PlayYourPart
