Today was Safer Internet Day and all of Victoria’s schools participated in a webinar on how we can stay safe online. It included information on how to keep your details private online, this included things on the dangers of strangers online, how to prevent bullying and what to do if you do get bullied. During the webinar it gave us opportunity’s to answer questions though a chat. We found out that half of our group had been contacted by strangers online. Some of the things they said were tell a trusted adult and report anything that makes you feel bad and keep any evidence so they can can work out who did it. I already tell a trusted adult if anything upsetting things happen online. A goal for future internet use would be to be mindful which websites I go on and which ones I think aren’t helpful.
