“Children and young people have the right to access information and they are increasingly using the internet to learn, play and socialise. It is essential that children are empowered to take advantage of the internet’s many benefits in a safe and informed way”
(United Nations Conventions on the Rights of the Child – UNCRC Article 17)
This week, we had a visit from British Telecom (BT) who was telling us all about internet safety. The workshop brought together UNICEF UK’s child rights expertise along with BT’s technological know-how around internet safety to provide information about how to safely navigate the internet, the potential risks associated with it as well as the overall benefits technology can have on our everyday lives. We also invited our parents into the classroom to make them more aware of the internet.
