As part of Safer Internet Day the children learnt about how to stay safe when they are using a variety of devices. We focussed on our online identity and what creates our identity online – such as the things we share with each other, how others perceive us and interact with us, as well as how online services use the information we share to identify and profile us. By opening up conversations around identity online, young people can be inspired and empowered to support each other to be who they want to be, both online and offline.
The children worked together to create a poster thinking about the hashtag #freetobe. They thought about how they could create an internet where people are honest, kind and happy.
