internet safety with professor garfield

One of our school goals addresses being socially responsible with technology - using technology safely and making sure that our students know how to keep themselves safe as well as they become digital citizens.

This week all the primary classes watched a short video about internet safety. The cartoon character Garfield was the star of the show and Professor Garfield taught the students to be "surf smart" and to not share their YAPPY (Your full name, Address, Phone number, Passwords, Your plans) when they are online. The video we watched can be found HERE.

The students in division 7 also had time to use Garfield's Online Safety app on the iPads. The students read informational comics and then played question and answer games to apply what they had learned.
