Cyber Safety: Social Media, Cyberbullying and Sexting (Year 10 Presentation)

This is a copy of a presentation I gave to Year 10 students on Cyber Safety. It covers social media, cyberbullying and sexting. Although this is heavy going I think it is still important when talking about this subject matter that you also talk about how positive social media can be, when used appropriately.

Freaked Out by Simon Pridham

 

Freaked Out is a fantastic book full of useful information and guidance on how to use the iPad to support teaching and learning. It starts off with the very basics and builds momentum from there. Simon recommends apps and ways in which they can be used as well as suggesting useful websites that the reader can use to learn even more about digital technology.

The books goes into detail about pedagogy as well as how using digital leaders can play a role in the in a successful iPad programme.  It’s jam packed full of tips and I would certainly recommend it to anyone looking into using iPads in education. Even if you have already started your journey you could learn a lot.

Towards the back of the book Simon goes in to detail about some of the important factors often forgotten by some schools , such as infrastructure, security, MDM, social media and e-safety.
