Class 11EG have started work on the new ICT curriculum. This involves a mixture of both theory and practical. Our early lessons have looked at the idea of online safety. A series of online tutorials has been completed by each student.
A short video was watched first. We then read a passage of text that contained definitions of some of the key terms. New vocabulary was introduced with words such as malware, virus, spyware, phishing and trolls.
Each pupil then completed a worksheet. This required us to be able to define what some of the new terms mean.
The main message from this topic is for the pupils to think about their own online safety. We will be looking at what is appropriate to share across social networks, and what information we should keep private.
