Our third ICT session focused on the dangers of internet usage, especially for young people.
After watching a hard-hitting – and for me, uncomfortable – video advert, highlighting ‘stranger danger’ of social media, our group engaged in an interesting discussion about our concerns relating to children and the world wide web, and how we would deal with any issues that arose with young people in our care.
Essentially, it’s a matter of vigilance. But it is an issue of the upmost importance, as the video we saw made explicit. We created a short presentation to demonstrate we understood the gravitas.
The video we watched is available on YouTube – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_o8auwnJtqE – and comes with my own ‘viewer discretion advised’ warning.
