PC Steer came into school today to speak to the class about keeping safe online. The children were very good at identifying the dangers of sharing information on social media. He also spoke about the appropriate age for various internet games and apps- the class were shocked to hear that the age restriction for Whatsapp is 16 and that Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram is 13. Also the popular game ‘Fortnite’ should not be used until the age of 12 according to the PEGI (Pan European Game Information).
It was a very informative presentation which sparked a number of interesting discussions.
