Safer Internet Day

Ivanhoe College is really proud to be supporting Safer Internet Day 2016, Tuesday 9th February . This year's theme has been been 'Play your part for a better internet'. This theme offers the opportunity to focus on both the craetive and positive things that young people are doing online as well as the role we all can play in helping to create a better internet. 

Mr Thornewill, Computing Teacher at Ivanhoe said,  “In this ever expanding digital age, it is essential that we educate our students about both the positive and negative aspects of using the internet. As digital natives, they are the most connected generation ever and whilst they readily embrace the amazing possibilities on offer, we should encourage them to be vigilant in protecting themselves from potential harm. I am pleased that a large majority of our students know the correct way to behave online and do not engage in behaviours that could endanger their future prospects.”

Mr Thornewill has pulled together a range of resources for students and parents. Students have had assemblies led my Mr Thornewill, our CEOP Ambassador,  about safer use of the internet and this will be followed up in form time. Students have been given a communication task designed to get them thinking about how they would respond the further away they get from face to face interaction and how it should be no different. There is also an interactive quiz on Moodle.
