Safer Internet Day Reflection 2017

-What did the webinar cover 

Today we were involved in a webinar chat which talked about safe use of your accounts and posts online and how that is your digital footprint. It talked about how if you post something online then that can lead to people leaving hate comments, hackers, people trying to steal your personal information e.g. phone number, address etc or people messaging you and threatening you, by being mean and making you upset. It also said that if you get famous online then you can be stalked, a lot of people will try to hack your account and you loose a lot of your privacy rights. Everyone has the right to feel safe and secure, to be different and to have their privacy to be private. If your feeling sad or upset about something online then you should always talk to a trusted adult or go to the eSaftey Website.


– What behaviors did they talk about that we already do

They spoke about how to react/respond to people hating or being rude on your account, they said to talk to a trusted adult ( parents, grandparents, auntie, uncle) or report it to someone. If  your feeling unsafe online then you always have people to talk to so always remember that you are not alone.


– A goal to set for future internet use

If someone messages me in a rude, threatening, mean or scary way then I will make sure to always tell a trusted adult and make sure that I don’t keep everything to myself. I will always know that I am not alone and I always have someone to talk to
