Digital literacy in primary

Kelly Smith, Our Lady of Lourdes RCVA Primary

Description

Given the increasing importance of online safety, this workshop offers some theory and practical activities both on and away from the computer to use in class when teaching Digital Literacy in primary, mostly KS2. The aim is not to highlight concerns over online safety but how to teach young people to become capable digital citizens. Many young people are actively engaged in IT worlds from an early age but are not yet prepared to engage confidently with a range of online communities and platforms.
