Content:

1rst term ( Sep-Oct-Nov)
  • Send and receive emails (Pupils exchange a class photo with their names)
  • We explore sites with pupils and we suggest a short list we like, saying why..
How to reload the page if all of the graphics didn't download
How to bookmark a site they like
How to go back to a site they've been to before
Show them what the hypertext words do

At least and no last we show them how to use the BACK button when something doesn’t look appropriate

  • Activities about navigation with sites for kids. How we search, what we care, where we focus.. Pupils choose a topic: eg: favorite national painter or whatever and make a short ppt uploading on Myplick (Navigate around the network find appropriate sites and bookmark them, combine information from different sources, use google images to find pictures, learn Copy and Paste)

2nd term ( Dec- Jan-Feb)
  • We make class safety rules using the ‘Box of Suggestions' ( Pupils discuss and suggest their own Rules for a safer Internet) we present them on a slideshow
  • Partners exchange the bookmarked sites and pupils choose those will help them to create safe presentations for a topic which will depend on what the rest partners have suggested with their proposed sites, using web 2.0 like Animoto, myplick etc. (it will be uploaded on the WIKI with pupils contribution)
  • We make a leaflet about e-safety with some images and some short text or a poster about Safer Internet
  • We do a research using a visual paper: How many of our pupils use at home mobiles with extra features e.g sms-mms-video-Internet etc)
