This week in computers, the grade six students worked on our whole school computer blog to view some clips from ‘Behind the News’.
The focus was about ‘Cyber Bulling’ and learning about the risks people take by going online, and the possible consequences of those risks. We also discussed the technical and behavioural measures we can all use, to help reduce our risk, and bolster online security — security for people, for internet devices, and for personal data. For example making sure our settings are private and how to block people that make us feel unsafe.
If you have ever used social media you might have read something hurtful written about you or you might have said something about a friend that you wish you could take back. It happens to lots of people, even adults. You may have even heard the term ‘Trolling’. In Internet slang, a troll is a person who starts quarrels or upsets people on the Internet.
Watch this clip and post your reflection underneath this page answering the following two questions.
What is cyberbullying? What should you do if you or someone you know is being cyberbullied?
During term two the grade 6 classes were asked to use an iPad to collect some artistic photographs. One was to be their favourite hangout spot around the school and the second photograph was to be an abstract image.
Term 1 Learning goals; Many of the grade 6 students have already practiced a variety of learning goals and some students have continued to modify their very own blogs adding some widgets. Students were asked to bookmark regularly used sites like Duo Lingo, Code Studio and Net Space-our school internet site.

Most of the grade 6 students work is uploaded and shared within their own private blogs.
