Media Literacy Week

This week is media literacy week in Canada.  In Division 7 we will be talking about all the amazing things you can do online, as well as potential problems.  We will be learning how to protect our privacy online.  Stay tuned for updates about what we are doing!

This week is a good chance to have a conversation with your child about online safety.  MediaSmarts has some fantastic resources for parents.  I found these great documents about internet safety tips for 5-7 year olds and 8-10 year olds.  What stood out for me was how important it is for parents to be involved in and aware of children’s online activities.  That will be an important message we focus on this week: “If you see something that makes you uncomfortable or aren’t sure if you should do something online, ask a grownup you trust.”
