This Tuesday was ‘Safer Internet Day’. See below pictures for our #SaferInternetDaySelfies.
To celebrate the children learned about the phenomenon of ‘selfies’, when people take pictures of themselves in different poses, usually with a smartphone device.
The class discussed some Golden Rules around selfie-taking
- Think twice before uploading a picture on to social media (many of which the children are too young to have anyway).
- Don’t upload a selfie of anyone else without their permission.
- Sometimes using filters can be fun but remember – you don’t always need to use a filter to make yourself look better. This gives out a false image and not everyone in real life looks as ‘beautiful’ as they do in selfies……except Mr Brown of course (‘teehee’ :p).
- Don’t compare your selfie to other’s online – remember they might have used filters (see point 3)!
- If you see somebody posting a selfie online don’t write anything hurtful in the comments section. If you’ve got nothing nice to say just don’t say it at all; its difficult to understand how comments are meant to come across when they are written.
- Don’t send pictures of yourself to people that you do not know online!
