Safer Internet Day!

Today we participated in a webinar. It was about safety and privacy online. We learned that you should always have your settings set to private so people don’t hack you and get your personal details. When you post something online you create a digital footprint that can never be taken down or deleted.  There was an animation about a little girl who wanted to be famous, and we learned that being famous online can lead to cyberbullying. If you are being bullied online, you should take a screenshot of the bullying as evidence and show it to a trusted adult. Never meet up with someone from an online chat that you don’t know in real life, because they might be lying about their identity and they could be bad people. If someone asks you to meet up, you should block them and tell a trusted adult. If you are worried about something online, you can contact the kids helpline for help and more information.
