STAYING SAFE ONLINE
The closing date for the online competition is 22nd June for anyone who is interested.
Staying safe online is called 'digital literacy' and this means having the skills and knowledge to use the internet safely and responsibly. It is where someone can manage online content and communication, spot possible risks, and find ways to protect themselves from these risks. You can find out more by visiting Childnet. Your child could have a go at entering The Childnet Film Competition which invites young people aged 7-18 to create a 2-minute online safety film to inspire their peers to create a safe, supportive and fun online world around the theme ‘We want an internet where we’re free to…’ The entries that make into the final shortlist will be judged by a prestigious panel made up of representatives from BAFTA, the BBC, the British Board of Film Classification, the BFI, Disney and the Motion Picture Association. The young people who create winning films and storyboards will receive great filmmaking and creative prizes for their school or youth group. Whether used at school or as a home learning project, the competition is a great way of exploring important internet safety messages with young people of all ages. Find out more here.
