Keep Safe: Screens and Keypads
This online module aims to equip children with key information about how to keep safe when using screens and keypads on computers and devices, e.g. tablets and mobile phones. It is ideal for delivery in class via an interactive whiteboard or a computer projector.
The aims and objectives of this module correspond with the SPHE curriculum requirements for 3rd and 4th class in relation to computer safety. The module is therefore most suitable for children in 3rd and 4th class but may also be used as a ‘refresher’ lesson with more senior classes.
Duration: Two 30-40 minute lessons followed by a third quiz based lesson.
• Increase the children’s awareness of the hazards related to using computers/devices.
